Pantry of Angels

The Pantry of Angels is currently located at the Presho United Methodist Church, 1727 Indian Hills Road, in Lindley.
  • The pantry's hours are 4 to 6 p.m. on the first and fourth Wednesday of the month.

The Pantry's goal is to make sure that everyone in the Town of Lindley has enough to eat and that no one goes hungry. The Pantry serves the residents of Lindley who have trouble providing food for themselves or their families. Those in need of food include:

  • People who are unemployed, or whose jobs don't pay enough to make ends meet.
  • People whose public assistance is not enough to feed them.
  • People receiving mental health services.
  • People who are homeless.
  • People in crisis.
  • Senior citizens.
  • and anyone else in Lindley who needs food.

The Pantry provides high quality food at no cost to their clients. Clients may have access to the full pantry twice a month. Pantry selections include, juices, vegetables, fruits, soups, crackers, pasta, cheeses, meats, cereals, macaroni and cheese, tuna, and meals in a can (Spaghetti-O's, ravioli, chili, stew etc.) The Pantry of Angels is a client choice pantry. To assure maximum use of the food, clients select items from each food category based on family size and likes.

The Pantry of Angels is a member agency with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. Pantry's are funded through donations and grants from federal, state and local governments as well as private organizations and individuals.

The Pantry of Angels welcome food, money donations and volunteers. If you have any questions on how to donate food items please leave a comment. An organizer of the Pantry of Angels will get back to you.

Note from Sal: Well done girls. Hunger does have a cure!

Kim:

Would the Pantry of Angels ever consider holding "cooking or baking lessons" for clients? I believe people can maximize their food dollar if they knew how to prepare economical meals. There are plenty of great cooks and bakers in town who would probably donate their time to teach clients how to make cheap nutritious meals. A lot of time young mothers (and dads) don't know how to cook or bake very many healthy meals. Just a thought....Sal

HI Sally,

Cooking and Baking classes would be great. They would have to be held in someone's home or church as our new pantry location will not have the equipment. Any volunteers? Kim
