Project Love Food Pantry

Open every Wednesday from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Our mission is to serve our community by providing assistance to those in need with compassion, respect, and dignity. We offer canned goods, cereals, pasta, meats, breads, milk, and other assorted food items, as well as some personal care items, paper products, and cleaning supplies. The Pantry also offers fresh fruits and vegetables when they’re available.

If you have questions about Project Love, or if you or someone you know is in need of assistance, please contact us!
