College Street Baptist Church Food Pantry is open Monday and Tuesday each week from 10am-1pm. We have a drive thru setup to help with social distancing and volunteers directing you where to go. We serve the greater Walhalla area and we are continuing to help during this pandemic.
Thanks to all the volunteers who keep our food pantry open and serving families.
