In 1987, someone knocked on the doors of St. Peter’s Church and asked for food. This simple question sparked the creation of the St. Peter’s Food Cupboard. We believe that no one should go hungry, and we make food available at no cost. If you are in need of food, we distribute groceries every Saturday from 8-10 a.m. at the Parish House at 313 Pine Street. No need to preregister, just show up!
The Food Cupboard is managed by volunteers from the church, neighborhood, and community. Individuals as well as groups from universities, youth groups, and schools are welcome.
If you are a group of more than 5 people, or if you’d like more information about the Food Cupboard, please contact the Food Cupboard Manager Mara Blake-Ward at [email protected]
Volunteers are needed during the week (usually for 30-45 minutes on Friday afternoons) to bring groceries up from the basement of the Parish House and set them up on the first floor. We also need several people each Saturday morning from 7:45-10 a.m. to help distribute groceries. Clients choose the items that they want and volunteers are there to assist and then put everything away at the end of the session.
