Venture Churches Food Pantry

Open Tuesdays 9:30-11:30 am and 5:00-7:00 pm

Located at:  First Reformed Church of Bethlehem, 38 Church Road (off of Rt. 9W), Selkirk, NY

We are four local churches that have been serving people in our community for over 30 years.  This ministry comes out of our faith and belief in helping fellow people in need.  We recognize each individual has unique needs.  We treat people with respect, dignity, compassion, kindness and without judgment or discrimination.  We provide a bridge to a variety of resources and cooperate with area businesses and other local food pantries.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Food Pantry or are in need of our services, please call the church office (518) 767-2243 Mon. to Fri. from 9:00 am-1:00 pm.

It is still the middle of summer, but it is time to start getting ready for "Back to School." After more than two years of Zoom and hybrid classes, we all hope that our students may be in classrooms full-time this September.

Please help the Venture Churches Food Pantry in its effort to send local students to school with needed supplies. (Please note that we have LOTS of #2 pencils)

We need the following items:

  • crayons (8/12/16 or 24 count)
  • colored pencils (pre-sharpened please)
  • fine-point, colored markers
  • black or blue ink pens
  • note paper (wide rule)
  • composition notebooks
  • spiral notebooks (single topic /wide rule)
  • folders with pockets
  • 3 ring binders
  • scotch tape
  • backpacks

Thank you for your continued generosity!
