Food Programs

Food Pantry

If you run short of a staple of goods during the month, then let us know. The First AME Food Pantry may be able to assist. Let others in the community know that they can count on First AME for canned food and other limited grocery items. Thanks to all who faithfully provide food and grocery items for the Food Pantry!

Monthly Feeding Programs

We provide a monthly meal to the Men’s Shelter on the first Saturday of the month and the Women’s Center on the third Monday of the month. Anyone willing to cook, donate, or serve, please contact Sister Sheryl Silvera-Moore at 240-632-9760.

Additional hands are needed Saturday mornings (once a month) to sort, package, and distribute. Not available on Saturdays? If you are willing to purchase items for the Montgomery County Food Grant segment of the program, please contact Sister Sheryl Silvera-Moore at
