In the spirit of loving our neighbors and living into being a Downtown Church, we installed a free mini pantry on the southwest corner of the building fall of 2020.
Anyone is welcome to “take what you need, leave what you can”.
Small groups, teams, or families are invited to “sponsor” the mini pantry for a week. Check on it, stock it with supplies, and help keep it clean and organized. It is important to remember to keep items seasonally appropriate, particularly in our Minnesota winters.
Recommended items for spring/summer :
All Items must be shelf stable, sealed and appropriate for the temperatures. Preferably plastic containers and cans with pull tabs:
Peanut butter – small jars or single servings
Other nut butters
Peanut butter crackers
Jerky, beef or turkey
Shelf stable meats and cheese
Nuts, nut mixes
Ramen noodle cups
Instant soup cups
Grain and Carbs
Cereal – single serve
Instant oatmeal in single serving packages
Instant mashed potatoes
