Food Pantry Needs

The Food Pantry exists on the donations of Columbians and residents, as well as local companies, churches and organizations. Will you donate needed items to the food pantry today?

Check our

Saturday morning volunteers


We have a team of volunteers who take turns picking up donations from Food for Others, 2938 Prosperity Ave., Merrifield, and bringing them to the food pantry. 

Pickups are between 12:30 and 1:30pm on Fridays, and are usually between 500 and 800 pounds. Food for Others personnel load the food, and pantry volunteers help unload.
