Food Pantry Workers

Tuskawilla UMC offers emergency food assistance to members of our community through TUMC’s Food Pantry. Non-perishable food items are gathered into bags and available to be picked up from the Church Office during office hours. TUMC also prepares food bags for delivery to local school food pantries before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays to help respond to the need for food during school breaks.

We encourage patrons of our Food Pantry to bring their donations on the First Sunday of each month, though we will receive donations at any time. Suggested items include:

Canned Beans and Dry Beans
Peanut Butter or other Nut Butters
Rolled Oats and Whole Grain, Low-sugar Cold Cereals
Canned Fruit in juice
Canned Vegetables, with no or low-sodium
Low-sodium Soups and Stews
Canned Tuna in water
Canned Chicken
Nuts and Dried Fruits
Shelf Stable Milk and Milk Substitutes
