Caring for Those In Need Since 2010

Pantry food distribution begins with sorting donations.

The Silver Lake Community Church (SLCC) food pantry has operated weekly since 2010.

It currently serves approximately 80-90 families per week (18,000 people a year.) And

these numbers do not include the unhoused population, which is served on Wednesdays

from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. SLCC did not stop operating during the pandemic, and it’s still a

challenge to provide enough food, and necessities like diapers, clothes, blankets and

more to those in need.

"As usual, during the holidays we will have an increase in patrons, so the numbers could

go up in the next few weeks to over 125 families,“ said Stephanie Young, Silver Lake

Community Church’s office manager.

Young also noted that fresh produce, dairy products and proteins are scarce, and are

needed to keep the food pantry stocked for the hundreds of families assisted. For the

unhoused, easy-to-open cans, crackers, small cereals, protein bars, and items that don’t

need to be cooked or opened with a can opener, and don’t require refrigeration, are in

great demand.

Whatever you can donate will be truly appreciated.
