The Food Pantry and the Lunch Boxes of Love Ministry

SJMCC Food Distribution Pantry 2 St. John's MCC's Food Pantry SJMCC Food Distribution Pantry 3

Through our Lunch Boxes of Love Ministry and in partnership with LoveWins Community Engagement Center, we provide essential items and services to hundreds of people each month.

It is our goal that NO ONE ever leaves our doors hungry.

We presently are serving over 600 hot meals each week to families and individuals and supporting over 80 households each week through our Food Pantry.

The COVID-19 Crisis has increased demand as many of us are faced with food insecurity and financial strain. We have been able to maintain our meal program and meet the increased demand because of generous contributions from people just like you!

Please see our needs list below.

We have taken additional precautions to keep you safe during the COVID crisis and are providing safe ways for you to drop off your donations. Call us at 919.834.2611 ext 406 when you arrive during our regular operating hours (listed below); we will provide instructions for where you park, where to drop off, or how we can assist with unloading.

You may drop off your donations at our ministry facility located at 622 Maywood Avenue, Raleigh, NC 27603 on Mondays and Fridays from 9am-12pm and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9am-5pm.

If you would like to drop off your donation outside of these hours/days or would like to arrange for us to pick up, please call us at 919.834.2611.

We thank you for your support! Because of your generosity, someone will go to sleep tonight knowing that someone cares about them!
