The Shiloh Food Pantry is a self-sustaining, non-profit ministry of Shiloh run by long-time Shiloh member, Gerry St. Jean, and a volunteer board of directors.
We provide affordable groceries to residents of Manchester and the surrounding communities and we rely on the generous donations of our business partners and the proceeds of customer sales to continue to purchase foods at low prices and offer it at a low cost to others.
How does the food pantry work?
Customers are invited to browse our selection of items using a randomized system to determine order of entrance. Our products are available at greatly discounted prices and vary from week to week but may include items such as produce, frozen goods, breads, meats, candy, dairy, soda, home supplies and more. Bread, select soda and other select miscellaneous items are available for free to shoppers who spend more than $10.
Who can shop at the food pantry?
Anyone! This is not a typical food pantry where food is only provided to those in dire need. Regardless of your budget, we encourage all families to shop at our pantry so that we can reach our goal of giving back to the community.
Why should I shop at the food pantry?
We are a self-sustaining organization that relies on the proceeds from weekly sales to purchase inventory, cover overhead, and give back to local non-profit organizations. Our goal is to provide in excess of $100,000 of goods and funds each year to families and organizations committed to serving the needs of the local community.
How can I get involved?
The Food Pantry is run solely by volunteers with the exception of our Director, Gerry St. Jean. We need help on various weekday mornings picking up and unloading supplies. We also need assistance on Fridays before, during, and after our customer service hours. If you're interested in volunteering, contact Gerry by phone (603-391-5741) or by email.
Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. Donate here.
