"I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. I was naked and you gave me clothes to wear. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.’"
Matthew 25:35-36

ELAINE KADANE FOOD PANTRY
 

 

The Elaine Kadane Food Pantry began in January, 1992 and was named in honor of the woman who inspired the congregation to take action and establish the pantry for those families in need.

The Food Pantry at Ascension provides bagged goods to families in need on the first and third Tuesday of every month from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. Approximately 100-150 bags are distributed every time.
