Note:

MCEF Pantry – nonperishable foods – stock up on canned goods – once in each month.

 

The Greater Nazarene Baptist Church pantry is a satellite pantry of MCEF – to serve people who live in northern Mechanicsville and Hanover Courthouse.

 

Hanover Friends pantry – numbers are given out and the whole group goes in to hear the pastor speak. Then numbers are pulled randomly and called out to indicate the order people can shop the tables set up with prepared foods, last-day meats, and breads/sweets (perishables). A person can go to this pantry every Tuesday.
