Grace Food Shelf
The Grace Food Shelf is an important ministry of Hill Avenue Grace and an outreach to the Pasadena community. We are open rain or shine every Saturday from 9:30am to 11:30am. We provide food to the homeless, individuals and families with children.
We fed 5,000 people in 2013 with 2,600 bags of food given out to those in need. We provide this food on an as needed basis without discrimination. All are welcome to receive food. This ministry is operated by volunteers and has grown to become one of the most important food distribution centers in the Pasadena area.
The number of homeless and families with children in need of basic food subsistence has grown. Families have lost their jobs and in many cases, their homes. Some are resorting to living in their cars. Others live on the streets.
All people in need of food are welcome to receive bags of food each Saturday-Grace Food Shelf serves everyone in need without proof of unemployment or a pay stub under a certain level. We are non-sectarian and open to anyone who can show a need.
