FARMINGTON N.M.- Presbyterian Church is offering people food during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“What we provide is both food boxes for families that are able to cook food, that have homes or apartments as well as homeless with what we call “snack bags” which are ready to eat food and water,” said Rev. Megan.

Nancy's Pantry has been a part of the church for many years. It is a no questions asked pantry. They don't ask for personal information like other government run pantries.

All they ask for is how many members are in the household that will determine how much food a person will get.  There has been an increase in people coming in for food since the pandemic. 

“We've had like 20 folks a day, thankfully people who come here, who help pack, it's a very small number of people same family we keep all the rules, but they are the one who put together the bags,” said Rev. Megan

Not only do they give food, but they also throw in other stuff that is hard to come by like toilet paper and other toiletries if you are in need of them.

The pantry is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. People will be taking precautions like social distancing and wearing protective gear.
