Interfaith Food Pantry

We accept offerings for the Interfaith Food Pantry serving Allenstown and Pembroke on the 2nd Sunday of the month (what we call “Brown Bag Sunday”). Items needed include, but are not limited to: juice, tuna, canned fruit, macaroni and cheese, cereal, soups, hash, canned meats, beef stew, personal hygiene products, and toilet paper. Donations may be left in the Parish Hall.

The pantry is open on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 PM and 5:30 to 6:30 PM. Volunteers to help in the pantry are needed. Contact Muriel Previe at the Pembroke Welfare Office (485-4747) if you have questions or want to volunteer.

Our Family’s Table

Members of our church volunteer at the local soup kitchen, Our Family’s Table, located at the Suncook United Methodist Church. Our Family’s Table is open to all who need a hot meal, human contact, friends, or someone to listen and share. Meals are served every Wednesday evening at 5:30 PM from September to June. Volunteers are needed on those Wednesdays.
