We serve hundreds of people each week.  You can help us feed the hungry people of Virginia Beach by making a FINANCIAL DONATION (click here).  If you choose to donate by check, please make them payable to Courthouse Community UMC and designate the donation to the “Food Pantry” on the memo line.  Mail donations to Courthouse Community UMC at 2708 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach, VA, 23456, or place them in the collection plate if you worship with us.  You are welcome to worship here.

We purchase food from The Southeast Food Bank of Virginia for 12 cents a pound – your monetary donations go a long way to feed the hungry in Virginia Beach!
