St. Paul's Food Pantry program began in 2006 when members of our congregation organized a small food pantry to provide food for 12 hungry families. As our mission grew, so did the community involvement and the number of families needing assistance. Today, we continue to feed our local families with the generous support of local restaurants who contribute to the annual Stone Soup fundraiser and the wonderful individuals, families and companies who support our cause by participating in our great community event. Although we didn't really start our pantry with a stone and pot, we did start very small and relied on our "village" to contribute.
The wonder of stone soup is that it feeds hungry people while bringing neighbors together to celebrate our own blessings.
St. Paul’s Food Pantry has three principal objectives: to distribute emergency food assistance to individuals and families in the Greenville area; to cooperate with partnering agencies so that recipients have access to the greatest number of nutritional resources; and to provide information about other social service resources available in the area. This completely volunteer program operates all year long in a building on the St. Paul’s Church campus. It provides bags of food to approximately 135 households of various sizes, and feed between 350-600 people each week.
