Stealey & Duff Street United Methodist Churches Food Pantry
Due to the COVID-19 virus, extra precautions and social distancing will be observed. The Food Pantry is considered an Essential Service. We will give out pre-bagged food and are not able to offer a selection during this time. We do not have all our usual items but have food that will help feed your family.
If you have been to the Food Pantry before, all we will need is your name as we have your essential information. We will bring the food to the door and you will not need to enter the building.
New families will need
a. Valid WV Driver’s License or ID
b. Proof of residency - utility bill or rental lease
c. Birthdates for all family members
Backpack Program - The Backpack Program is on hold until students return to school. A date for bag assembly will be determined as soon as they return.
