This may look like one of Hermiston’s lovely little neighborhood libraries…It’s not.  ♥️ Outside of the Hermiston First United Methodist Church sits a little food pantry, stocked with easy to open, no heat needed food items for those desperate for a meal.

We are ALWAYS grateful for donations to keep this food pantry open! If you have any apple sauce, peanut butter crackers, soup, or peel back cans, we’d appreciate it! Pastor Patricia Webb Nance is at the church on Thursdays.

Thanks to the help of Jerry Nance, who dug the post hole and cemented the post into the ground, and Dean Fialka, who built the cute (and functional) little pantry, and the people who have kept it stocked with food, we have been able to help many people who would not have otherwise had food.  The need is real! 

Food pantry donations may be made on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  Monetary donations can be mailed to the church (address on this website). 

You may also make your donations here on the website by clicking on the “Donations” tab at the top of this page.  After choosing the amount, click on “I would like to designate this donation to a specific fund”.  Click on the drop down menu where it says “No fund specified”, then choose “Food Pantry” from the list.

If you have questions, please call me at (541) 561-3314 or (541) 567-1948.
