In the early years of the late ‘80s -’90s there were several ladies from this church who worked with C-Cap in Martinsburg and had a call to bring this service to the northern part of Berkeley County. Miss June and Virginia Landis challenged our Hedgesville United Methodist Church to start a pantry in this area. Our church had the space for this and so a group of Christians from all churches who wanted to participate formed a group.
 
For a while Miss June, Virginia Landis, Dot Gruen, Betty Cummings gave out food to families who needed help. In the late ’90s Maureen Sabol of the Catholic church, was elected chairman and others from all the churches in this area came and set up rules and formed ways of supporting the pantry. The pantry is supported by the churches and persons who want to help by giving donations of money, food, and personal time to work the pantry, which is open the 4th Friday of each month except November and December, when it is open the 3rd Friday of these two months.
 
Food is also taken up for us at local schools and other churches and individuals of the community. Food is purchased from Food Lion wholesale and also use of the MVP card. Several men from local churches bring food to pantry and it is then placed on the shelves to give to the many families in need. The pantry has been serving around 75 families or a total of 200 or more people. God bless the members who work the pantry. God bless everyone.
