EMCC Food Pantry


Pantry Hours: Monday – Friday 1-3pm

The EMCC Food Pantry is always in high demand. Families in the Martindale-Brightwood area are our first priority but we will not turn anyone away. For persons residing outside our service area we will refer you to a pantry within your neighborhood. Our pantry not only provides food to families in need but with the assistance of our partners our Pantry also provides food to many of our programs including our childcare ministry, senior angels, and afterschool programs. Our pantry also provides other important items families need like toothpaste, toilet paper, soaps, laundry detergents, and other household necessities. With the popularity of our food pantry also come challenges. We are always in need of help to keep our shelves stocked with the foods and household items families need.


Donations Accepted Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm
