Park Street Church Food Bank

“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”  Isaiah 58


Who We Serve

Food Banks function differently from Food Pantries.
A Food Pantry provides food to the public to counter the effects of Food Insecurity.
A Food Bank stores a supply of food and makes it available to Food Pantries when other sources are unavailable.
Our Food Bank stocks up nonperishable foods and provides these to Food Pantries with whom we have partnerships.

I never thought I would have the opportunity to use the skills I cultivate at work, such as team-building and project management, to advance God’s Kingdom and help meet immediate needs in the city I call home. I’m excited to be able to help the body of Christ work together for His good!
