Food Ministry

The WGBC Food Ministry is open the second and fourth Thursday of the month for those individuals or families who are in need of food assistance. We are open from 6:30 till 7:30 in the gym, located around the back of the church. If you are in need, we ask that you bring a government issued I.D., proof of residency in the 23111 or 23116 zip codes, and an I.D. for the individuals in your household. We distribute

non-perishables based on number of individuals in the household.

The Food Pantry is an ongoing ministry at Walnut Grove where families, individuals, and youth are invited to come and be a part of something bigger than themselves. From helping those in need in the community, to spending time in fellowship, relationships are built through the kindness and hospitality shown by our volunteers. Bring your family and be a part of this growing ministry. For more information call the church office.

We firmly believe that no child should be hungry. Walnut Grove started a backpack program in the Fall of 2011, providing a backpack full of food for the weekend to 28 kids throughout the school year. We currently partner with three local Elementary Schools to bring the program to these kids. If you would like to help support this program or would like some information about the ministry, we would love to hear from you.
