Mission Statement of the Grace Bible Church Food Pantry
"We seek to demonstrate Christ's love by helping to provide food and information to those in need."
Grace Bible Church opened the food pantry to the community for the first time in October of 2010. The current hard economic times have caused many to rely on food pantries to assist them with their food needs. It is a real privilege to be able to show God's love in this way.
Proper identification is required to receive food.
The pantry depends on the food donations from the people who attend Grace as well as many community people who have generously donated to this ministry. We are also a member of the Food Bank of South Jersey in Pennsauken.
Please call the church office (856) 546-4885 when there is bad weather (snow, ice, etc.) to see if the Food Pantry is open.
