The Pantry has had many homes over the years, including St Joseph Church in the Rectory basement. While at this location, we received the referrals from the various pastors of the churches involved..All the churches supplied us with the necessary food items and we advertised for donations in the community. We delivered to the people in need during this time.
Then we outgrew that location and moved to the First United Methodist Church. A pantry was built for us in the educational building. It became necessary as the need grew, and with an offer from the First United Church of Christ Church to utilize part of the Ministry Center effective in 1996. It was also necessary to better service our clients by requiring them to come to the Ministry Center for their food needs. We stayed in that location until such time when we moved to the Township Building. The pantry works with the Lockport Supervisor’s office in referring requests for services that can not be met at the pantry.
