Food & Clothing Bank
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in..." Matthew 25:35
Our Food Bank and Clothing Bank are very important parts of what we do here at Life Church. Through them, we have been reaching out to our city and offering resources for families that cannot afford to provide for all of their basic needs. The Food Bank and Clothing Bank are both located in the lower building on our property.
On the fourth Saturday of most months, our team loads the food into a truck provided by the Marion-Polk Food Share and transports it to one of several elementary schools in Salem, where we distribute the food to needy families. Our on-site Food and Clothing bank is open every Wednesday night from 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM, except the Wednesday immediately following our Saturday distribution.
We are here to help, so please drop by if you're struggling to supply your family with food or clothes! We also welcome you to volunteer with either the Wednesday night or Saturday food bank operations. If you have any questions about our Food & Clothing Bank or would like to find out how you can help, please call us at 503-362-0362. You may also call this number to find out the location of this month's Mobile Food Bank.
We would greatly appreciate your clothing donations! There is a large white receptacle in the main hallway at Life Church where you may drop them off. Please make sure the items are in good condition. Thank you!
