About the Food Pantry at Pilgrim

The Food Pantry at Pilgrim is an emergency food bank, offering non-perishable groceries and basic hygiene items. Check out this video about our grand re-opening of the Food Pantry!

Hours of Operation

The Pantry is open to the public on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month from 11am-1pm, but is available 7 days a week by appointment (see bottom of page).


Aside from donation of goods, you can give monetary gifts to help support consistent supply and upkeep of the Food Pantry.
