MVPC’s Food Pantry is up and running serving and benefiting our Lamorinda community and local families who are in need. The food pantry is open every Wednesday from 5-6:30PM located downstairs in rooms 201 and 202 near the Family Ministries Office.
Thanks to the generosity of MVPC families, our food pantry is abundant with non-perishables, such as pasta, rice, beans, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, mac and cheese, flour, sugar, cereal, jelly, canned beans, soup, chili, tuna, vegetables. Please continue to drop off your food pantry donations in a box outside the Church Office. If you can, please buy multiples of the same item.
Spread the word to your community. Consider picking up food for families in need if they are not able to come.
Visit mvpctoday.org to learn more about their programs and worship services.
