We will also need volunteers on the Friday before the day we’re open for unloading boxes from the Food Gatherers trucks and stocking them in the basement. All help is welcome, stay for as long or as short as you’d like!

To schedule a delivery from the Beautiful Gate food pantry, please check here for our delivery form. The pantry is currently only open on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month, so we’ll be posting a new delivery sign-up sheet on the Monday of each week we’re open and leaving it up until Wednesday at noon. Due to limited volunteer capacity, we currently can only deliver to 55 people total, so the spots will fill up very fast as many people are in need of food. The form will automatically close for the week once we reach our limit. We’d like to prioritize disabled and elderly people who cannot get to the pantry to pick-up food, so if you are able to come to the pantry, please do that instead so we can reach the people who can’t.
The next pantry date will be Saturday, October 22nd. Click here for the sign-up sheet for delivery for this weekend.
