Streetsboro community pantry
The Streetsboro community pantry is a non-profit organization affiliated with Streetsboro united Methodist church, St. Joan of Arc catholic Church, the chapel at tinker's creek and the akron-canton regional food bank.
Our purpose is to provide free food to families in Streetsboro that are struggling to meet their daily food needs. It is our mission to help our neighbors while keeping their
individual needs in mind.
Streetsboro Community Pantry News:
The pantry is now open from 1-4 PM on Wednesdays. No appointment needed! We hope this will help those folks who have to schedule a ride, especially those who need a day or two to arrange transportation.
Thanksgiving Bags of Blessings News:
We are asking people to consider donating 12 pound frozen turkeys and dinner rolls. We are planning to serve approximately 125 families. If you prefer to donate money instead, we would use that to buy items we don't get donated for these giveaways. If you want to bring a turkey in, please call the pantry first to make sure someone is in the pantry. If you want to volunteer when we are doing the giveaways, please call the pantry. The giveaway count will take place on Nov. 16th at 1 p.m. in the stage room, and the giveaway will start on Nov. 18th at 8:30 a.m.
Items always needed: Peanut butter, tuna, Rice-a-Roni (Chicken or Beef), canned fruit, canned vegetables, soup, condiments such as ketchup, mustard, and salad dressings, cereals, cake mixes and frosting.
Also needed are the following:
Shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine products, deodorant, laundry detergent, diapers, and wipes.
Monetary Items are just as important:
For every dollar that is donated, the Pantry can purchase four dollars worth of food from the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank. We purchase the rest of the items at local stores, receive donations from local businesses, and accumulate items by hosting various food drives.
The Streetsboro community pantry is an all volunteer agency. We have approximately 50 people in all who help us in many different ways. We depend totally on the community to help this organization to function. WE are always in need of assistance. Call the Pantry for more information.
