Welcome

... to the Reisterstown United Methodist Church Food Pantry!!  We are a ministry of the Reisterstown United Methodist Church serving food to families in need.  Our all-volunteer staff is ready to help you.

The RUMC Food Pantry is a partner with Maryland Food Bank and we work closely with the Community Crisis Center, Westminster Rescue Mission, and the Alpha Pregnancy Center.  We operate solely by volunteers and via donations made to the Food Pantry.  We are always looking for new partners.

In 2015, we handed out over 2,750 bags of food which totaled over 75,000 lbs. of food.  That food helped to feed over 525 families throughout the community.

 We Serve

Food Pantry Serves the Community

The RUMC Food Pantry serves the residents of Reisterstown, Owings Mills, Glyndon and Finksburg.  If you live in those communities then you are welcome to stop by once a month for a free bag of food.  Please note that ID is required to show residence in these areas.  We also have a "swap shop" that makes clothing and other donated items available if you have a need.

In addition, the first Saturday of every month we hold a Community Kitchen.  Please stop in with your family for a free hot meal.

Hours We Are Open

We are open:

Wednesday nights from 6 pm to 8 pm

Saturday mornings from 9 am to 12 noon

 

Find Us

We are located in the basement of the Dale Chambers Community Center located at 308 Main Street in Reisterstown.  Please come around back and take the ramp down by the brick wall.

There's limited parking behind the Food Pantry so if the lot is full, please use the main lot behind the church.

Help Us

The Food Pantry is always in need of additional help as the need for food in our community continues to grow.  We welcome connections with local businesses through food drives, financial donations, and volunteers.

We are always looking for donations of the following items:

Cereal and oatmeal Canned vegetables
Canned fruit and applesauce Spaghetti and sauce
Macaroni and cheese Soup and crackers

The Food Pantry can always use plastic grocery bags as well. You can drop off your empty bags where you drop off your food donations.

Please contact the church office at 410-833-5440 if you would like to help with a food drive or to volunteer.
