Community Food Shelf

St John’s is a key supporter and board member of the Community Food Shelf (located in the parish hall of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Elizabethtown).

About 10 years ago, the Food Shelf decided to purchase a vegetable share in the “CSA” (Community Support Agriculture) at Full and By Farm in Essex. Every Thursday, volunteers from St. John’s pick up the share from the farm and deliver the produce to the Food Shelf to be distributed to our clientele. This has been an important supplement of fresh local food to hungry families.

The Community Food Shelf provides emergency or supplemental food assistance to serve families primarily in Elizabethtown, Lewis, New Russia, Wadhams, Westport, Willsboro and Essex. They also respond to food request referrals from Social Services, Families First and ACAP.

St. John’s Church...providing a spiritual haven, a safe space within which to explore and nurture our relationship with God, each other, and our neighbors.”
