Food Pantry

  The Commerce Food Pantry is housed at the First Presbyterian Church in Commerce and is staffed solely by volunteers. Those interested in donating canned goods and dry goods are welcome to drop off their donations during the church office business hours. Monetary donations are also accepted and a receipt will be given if requested. You may also purchase pre-packaged bags of food from Brookshire’s Grocery located at 1603 Culver Street in Commerce. Food Pantry volunteers will see that these bags are delivered to the Pantry distribution center at the church each week.

  The Commerce Food Pantry is open to those individuals and families in need each Thursday from 2 pm – 4 p.m. Please contact the church office at (903) 886-3783 for more detailed information.
