Food Pantry

Neighbors helping Neighbors survive financial crisis… from our pantry to their pantry

Matthews HELP Center’s food pantry provides clients with one week's worth of groceries. What sets our food pantry apart from others is how we also provide hygiene and cleaning supplies (laundry detergent, dish soap, bleach, etc.)

In 2013-2014, our food pantry served over 5,200 households in our community!
