Due to a fire, Eastside Ministries’ Pantry will be closed until further notice. We are heartbroken to what this will do to our family communities. Eastside will be open for clients to shop for clothing, bedding and free counseling Monday through Friday.
We are working on helping our clients find another food pantry so they will not go without this time of the season.

Believing in Our Community, One Person at a Time

Eastside Ministries wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world.


Your Eastside community believes in you.

At Eastside Ministries, we are dedicated to providing food, clothing, and other essential items to our neighbors in need. If you need that extra support, we are here for you. If you live in our service area, arrive during business hours (the earlier, the better!), sign-in, and fill out an application when instructed. One of our Intake Specialists will get you entered in our system so you can get the assistance your household needs.

Since May 15, 2021, Eastside has offered its services, including free food and clothing, at different partner locations in the communities.  Other services offered at these events free are, Blood Pressure, Diabetes Screening and depression or/anxiety screening.  If a person chooses to fill out the screening questionnaire and scores high for depression or anxiety, they will be offered an appointment for counseling free of charge.  See the News page on this website for specific dates, times, and locations of these Saturday mobile events.

Services will continue at during our usual business hours Monday through Friday at the present location on East Lancaster.


We’re here to help you.

You will receive groceries based on your household size. This will include pantry staples, and meat, dairy, bakery, and produce as our inventory allows. If you need baby food, please let your Intake Specialist know during your consultation.

Each member of your household will receive two complete outfits. An outfit is a top and a bottom, or a single dress. We sometimes have additional clothing items, like cold weather gear, socks, underwear, pajamas, etc. Generally, these items are one per person and the limits are determined by our Clothing Manager.

Household items like paper products, linens, and cleaning supplies are offered as available. These are generally in extremely limited supply.

Diapers (children and adult), feminine products, and incontinence items are available as needed. Let your intake specialist know if you need these items. Some sizes stay in short supply.

Housewares like decorative items and kitchen utensils and toys (when available) are placed on our “free shelf” in the clothing area, and are available on a first come, first serve basis. The books and magazines in our waiting area are also considered “free” items.
