Thanks to very generous members and businesses in our community, The Silver City Gospel Mission Food Pantry donates and distributes food to anyone who says they are hungry and signs up for our services (sign up for our newsletter or see sidebar for days and times)
And if you also sign up with proof of residence and self-declare your income you may be eligible for a government commodities food box each month.
(And don’t forget our daily soup kitchen).
Our vision is that no one will go hungry or be cold in the Silver City area, regardless of race, age or belief.
How To Get Food
Food is handed out in the thrift store, Tuesday through Friday from 9am-1pm.
Snack bags are handed out every Friday in the soup kitchen from 12-1pm.
We have a Thursday Morning Market where we give out a large food box every Thursday morning from 9am-10am (Map of how to line up in your car)
There is a Senior Food Pantry here at the Mission the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 10:30 am – 11:30 am where we hand out a large food box (Map of how to line up in your car)
And of course our soup kitchen is open Monday through Friday for breakfast from 8:30 am – 9:30 am and for lunch from 12pm-1pm.
Hunger In Silver City
In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 people in Silver City, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.
Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.
“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing”
Through the assistance of local and national food assistance programs, The Silver City Gospel Mission Food Pantry is able to provide nutritious, fresh foods to our neighbors struggling with hunger.
If you, or someone you know is in need of food or clothing, please come down to the Silver City Gospel Mission and we will make sure your needs are met.
