In compliance with the governor’s orders we are encouraging all members to wear masks to worship.
Humboldt Community Food Pantry: Due to the Coronavirus situation, the following will be continued for the Humboldt Food Pantry: The Pantry will now accept donations of food and non-food item. However, the Pantry continues to NOT accept clothing/household items/toys, etc.
The Pantry is in need of ramen noodles (beef and chicken)/ canned vegetable soup and canned evaporated milk. As the virus restrictions increases, so will the demand to seek help and food from the local food pantry, therefore, we encourage the community to support us and make monetary donations to the pantry to help offset the increased expenses. Monetary donations may be mailed to the Humboldt Ministerial Alliance, C/O 204 N.7th Street Humboldt Ks. 66748. The Humboldt Food Pantry, 718 Bridge Street, is OPEN EVERY TUESDAY from 5-6 PM.
THE FEEDING AMERICA PROGRAM (Wal Mart Donations) distributes food on the SECOND and FOURTH MONDAYS of the month from 10-11AM at the Humboldt Senior Center/Pantry, 718 Bridge Street. This is a “first come/first served” type distribution with no guarantee that there will be any food boxes left by 11AM.
ANYONE who lives in the USD # 258 district, who is experiencing food insecurity, is encouraged to come to the Food Pantry and to the Feeding America Programs.
You may help support the Humboldt Food Pantry by taking your gently used clothing/household items and furniture to “Everything Fitz” and designate the sales to the Humboldt Food Pantry.
