Hosanna’s Pantry is an Agency of Rochester’s Channel One food shelf that provides food and personal care items to families in need. Volunteers help order the food, organize and set up food deliveries, distribute food to families during the monthly pantry opening and clean up and store leftover food. Hosanna’s Pantry is open on the 4th Saturday of each month (the 3rd Saturday in Nov. and Dec.) from 9 – 11 am.
Helping Hands Pantry
The Helping Hands Pantry is located outside of Hosanna and is filled with food, toiletries and other necessities on a regular basis. Anyone may stop by and take what they need or drop off items that others may be able to use. Donations may also be dropped off in Hosanna’s main office.
Sharing and Caring Pantry
The Sharing and Caring Pantry is a large wooden box made as an Eagle Scout project by one of our members. Individuals donate food for the public to remove as needed. There is a list of suggested food items for donation.
Various groups of members meet once a month, on the day and time of their choice in Hosanna’s kitchen, to prepare meals for those in need. Those interested in making a meal (hot dish) may sign up in advance by calling the church office to reserve the kitchen
