The emergency food & clothing pantry is a non-profit service, staffed by parish volunteers and operated from the parish hall each Saturday morning we open the doors at 8:15 am and remain open until all waiting families are served. The Food Pantry is open to anyone in need. Food is also available by appointment during the week. To set up an appointment, call Dianne Anderson at 703-590-0030.
Our Clothing Closet is open the same hours as the Food Pantry and by appointment also. Clothes are usually sold prices range from $.50 to $1.00 except on brand new items. All profits go to Food Pantry expenses.
Donations | We ask that you bring donations of non-perishable boxed and canned foods anytime you come to the Church. Place it in the large wooden bin out in the commons area. These donations are used by our Food Pantry. We also accept donations of perishable foods but ask that you make arrangements to bring it to the Church to ensure safe food handling practices. We especially love the extras from your garden, fresh produce is an extra special treat for our patrons.
