Storehouse Food Pantry: About Us
The Storehouse Food Pantry, Courthouse Community United Methodist Church, began operation in 2008. Our mission is to provide groceries to supplement the food resources of people in our community who lack sufficient food. Initially, the Storehouse Food Pantry was open every Wednesday from 10:00 am to noon. In 2013, we added evening hours every Wednesday from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in order to serve people who worked during the day, but who still faced food shortages. In 2015, we served 3,252 families consisting of 13,340 people, including over 4,800 children. However, we serve everyone who comes to us for food, including a number of homeless individuals. Our customers are permitted to obtain food from our food pantry every week. We give our customers choices from 57 canned or boxed food items. We also provide bread that we obtain from Panera Bread; fresh eggs that we get from one of our partner churches; and we also purchase fresh produce each week. We have 79 people serving a variety of tasks in the Storehouse Food Pantry. We have partnered with six other churches in our area to keep our food pantry fully stocked every week. We are supported by donations of food and money given by the congregations of these seven churches and by food drives conducted annually by several Virginia Beach Public Schools. In recent years we have had to supplement these donations with grants and fundraisers in order to meet our needs.
Make cash and check donations payable to Courthouse Community UMC. Mail cash donations to Courthouse Community UMC at the address at the bottom of the page, or put them in the collection plate when you worship with us on Sunday. Be sure to designate your gift for the FoodPantry when writing a check.
