Everyone is welcome! The Grace Food Cupboard is a community outreach where no one is turned away. Because this ministry is not linked with any state or federal food bank, it is not required to adhere to government regulations.
Distribution takes place the last Tuesday and Friday of each month and is contactless. After entering the front parking lot, please follow the orange cones to the back of the church, where volunteers will place bags of pre-packaged food in your trunk. The dates of the next regular food give-away are Tuesday September 21 and Friday September 24, 2:30 to 4:00 pm. There is also now a supplemental monthly distribution on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, consisting only of bread, baked goods, snack foods and miscellaneous items. The next date for this supplemental distribution is is Wednesday October 13, 2:30 - 4 pm.
You may also help this ministry by donating canned and dry non-perishable foods - drop off at the church office during office hours (10 am – 1 pm Monday thru Friday) or call to arrange another time. PLEASE, check labels and do not donate outdated food. Most needed items at this time: canned pasta meals, rice, cereal, Spam, tuna, canned chicken, soup, and peanut butter & jelly. We are blessed with so many volunteers and supporters, in the congregation and in the Macungie community as well. THANK YOU! #GraceIsThePlace

More about this ministry: The Grace Food Cupboard started in June 2020, when the Zionsville Food Pantry, because of the pandemic, needed a way to distribute those food donations that were not deemed necessary to meet the government requirements. They called Grace, and we moved crates of items like cake mixes, spices, tomatoes, potatoes, cooking oil, beans, pudding, drinks, snacks, odd vegetables, colored pasta, etc. to our chapel hallway. However, we soon realized that we needed more nutritious food for our clients. So we asked members and friends to donate canned meats and pasta meals, peanut butter, and other items so our clients could make better choices.
Since then, our Grace Food Cupboard has evolved into a drive-up distribution on Tuesday and Friday of the last full week of the month, where anyone in our congregation or community can come and receive two pre-packed bags of groceries. The bags contain cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned fruit, two cans of vegetables, a box of mac and cheese, pasta and sauce, two cans of beans, a meal helper, canned meat, a canned pasta meal, and snacks. In addition, they can pick from a variety of donated groceries on carts that are set up in the parking lot.
