The Pantry at All Saints

Mission and Vision

The Mission of the Pantry at All Saints is to raise awareness of, promote advocacy for, and serve people afflicted by food insecurity and poverty, and to help families in the Greater Parma area to develop economic self-sufficiency.

The Vision of The Pantry at All Saints is to be a community that provides non-judgmental welcome, nutritious food, and warm clothing to its neighbors in need, in fulfillment of the Gospel call "I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing...".

Our Partners and Services

The Pantry at All Saints is a series of multi-organizational community service events hosted by All Saints Episcopal Church in Parma, Ohio.

Mobile Pantry (The Greater Cleveland Food Bank)

In partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, we have distributed more than 12,000 pounds of fresh produce to an average of 256 households every month since September 2014.  This and our soup kitchen are our original programs.

Soup Kitchen (All Saints Episcopal Church)

Our soup kitchen, which operates at the same time as our mobile pantry and clothing center, provides about 200 servings of soup to families every month.  Beverages are served as well. (Closed during the COVID-19 pandemic).

Clothing Center (All Saints Episcopal Church)

Founded in 2018 and expanded in 2019, the Clothing Center distributes about 340 items of clothing every month.  Some of our clothes are handmade.  Please call the parish if you would like to donate clothes or yarn. (Closed during the COVID-19 pandemic).

Nonperishable Food and Supplies (Rise in Love)

Rise in Love joins us every month to distribute non-perishable food, frozen food, meats, household supplies, and personal care products.

COVID-19 Venue (Parma Heights Baptist Church)

When we converted to a drive-through pantry model during the COVID-19 pandemic, our next door neighbor Parma Heights Baptist Church, offered use of their much larger parking lot for food distributions. We have become great friends and many PHBC members volunteer along side us.
