Our Food Pantry

The Vernon United Methodist Church Food Pantry provides food and personal care items to people in need in Sussex County. Our goal is to benefit all community members whenever and wherever we can. This highly practical ministry gives real support to families in need.

The pantry is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 9:30am - 12:30pm, and 5pm-6pm during the community dinners on the last Wednesday of the month.

Clothing for those in need


Donations are gladly accepted during our regular hours (Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30am - 12:30pm) . Non-perishable foods can be left in the basket in the narthex or the barrel in fellowship hall at any time the church is open. Please check with the church office before leaving donations at other times. Please do not leave donations outside when no one is at church.

Food Pantry is preparing for the Summer break from schools. During this time we are asking for favorite children's meals (i.e. macaroni & cheese, peanut butter & jelly/jam, cereals) as well as: canned pasta, soups, tuna, canned fruit, canned veggies. Thank you for your continued donations!
