Food Pantries at Episcopal Church of the Messiah and Rhinebeck Reformed Church Offer Assistance to Those In Need During the Current Coronavirus Crisis

The Episcopal Church of Messiah

The Food Pantry at the Episcopal Church of the Messiah will be distributing nonperishable food to anyone needing assistance during the current health crisis.

The distribution at Messiah will begin this Saturday, March 21st from 10am to 1pm in the church parking lot off Montgomery St, which can be accessed by the driveway between Scanlons Cleaners and Terrapin Restaurant.  The address of the church is 6436 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY 12572.

We are set up to distribute food to people who have driven into the parking lot and then park.  Volunteers will greet each car and ask simple questions regarding the size and needs of each family or individual.  We have designed a distribution process that protects everyone from possible exposure to the COVID-19 virus while observing guidelines from the CDC regarding maintaining social distancing. No registration is necessary to receive food.

The food distribution will be standardized with the size of the household being taken into consideration.

The pantry will distribute food every Saturday from 10am to 1 pm until the crisis has passed and anyone is welcome to receive food who needs assistance.

Questions regarding the food pantry can be directed to the parish office email at [email protected].
