2017 Food Pantry & Soup Kitchen

St. Andrew Food Pantry

A Partner Agency of the Community Foodbank of NJ -- Southern Division 

The need for food continues to grow each month. We issue new "Express Pass" cards each month after registration. These cards along with a current photo ID allow the client to quickly move through the distribution process. The "Express Pass" - sometimes called "EZPASS" - has been a process that everyone likes.

We continue to be part of a diaper program. We distribute diapers on our Food Pantry Thursdays or on an as-needed basis during the week. This program has grown substantially in the last two months. We receive 25 cases of various sizes each month.

Additional groups that service our clients are:
Southern Jersey Family Medical Centers, Inc. have joined us on Food Pantry days giving medical assistance for women and children and help with personal issues.

SNAP representative is available to sign up for Food Stamp Program.

Food Pantry Volunteers are gratefully welcomed. If you would like to help, there is a place for you! Just email or call the Church Office for volunteer sign-up. Orientation will be provided.

Donations of food and/or financial gifts are gratefully accepted to assist in this vital ministry. Shopping carts are provided in the lobby to deposit food donations. Checks for financial gifts may be made out to: St. Andrew By The Sea Lutheran Church. Please indicate in the memo line that the gift is intended for the Food Pantry.

Barnabas House 
Following Jesus by Serving Others

 

Barnabas House was started by Resurrection Ministries as a monthly soup kitchen which fed lunch to the homeless & low income Atlantic City residents on the 4th Saturday of the month from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. When Resurrection Ministries closed its doors in January 2017, St. Andrew made the decision to continue Barnabas House. Sharon Crosby is the new Director. Sharon has been cooking for Barnabas House for the last 5 years and her organizational skills along with her upbeat personality is an asset.

Working through the SA Food Pantry and partnering with the Community Foodbank of NJ, Federal and State food is receiving free of charge. Barnabas House serves around 90+ people per month.

Clothing is available each month. Donations of good, used clothing accepted.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer, please call the church office at 609-344-7333.
