Marietta Community Food Pantry – A Mission of the Move!
Where we came from: The pantry began as a project of a FCC Bible Study group where bags of donated food were provided to Marietta residents in need of help. Forty years later, with the support of countless FCC members and friends in the community, it has grown into the largest pantry in Washington County.
A Coordinator and over 30 volunteers keep the Pantry open four days per week. We provide about one weeks worth of emergency food once per month to over 7,000 people each year.
Where we’re going: About a year ago, the Church Council approved a proposal to search for a new location. We are re-organizing under the name Greater Marietta Community Food Pantry.
We will be found at 635 St. Rt. 821, Broughton Commercial Properties, Complex #1, Building 3.
The move will occur in October. There will be a celebration of this move and a tour of the new facility. Dates to be announced.
The continued financial support of the Marietta community through fundraisers, individual donations, and food drives (including exceptional support from the US Postal Service), have made it possible for our local food pantry and other feeding programs to continue to serve neighbors in need for 40 years.
