When calling for food requests, please use the following system:
If your STREET ADDRESS ENDS IN AN ODD NUMBER (those ending in 1,3,5,7,9), call for food ONLY on the ODD days of the month (1,3,5,7,9,11,13, etc.)
If your STREET ADDRESS ENDS IN AN EVEN NUMBER (those ending in 0,2,4,6,8), call for food ONLY on the EVEN days of the month (2,4,6,8,10,12, etc.)
In this time of increased uncertainty and demand, Bethesda Help continues to deliver food and provide financial assistance to those in need.
How can you help?
We need your help to meet the increasing demand for food! Bethesda Help will be holding two food drives over the next several weeks:
Wednesday, June 17 9:30 – 11:30 (Rain date – June 18)
Wednesday, July 8 9:30 – 11:30 (Rain date – July 9)
A list of needed pantry items is at this link. We are especially in need of canned chicken, canned tuna, canned vegetables, and peanut butter. Any of these items in any amount, even if just a few, will help us greatly!
*** Desperately Needed Items***
Low sodium canned green vegetables (15 oz)
Sugar free canned fruit (15 oz)
Peanut Butter (16 oz)
Rice (brown or white – 1 lb size ONLY)
The pantry is located at the North Bethesda United Methodist Church, 10100 Old Georgetown Rd, Bethesda (the corner of Old Georgetown Rd. and Lone Oak Dr). Just enter the parking lot from Lone Oak Drive. As you drive in, the building is on the right. The pantry entrance is the last door at the end.
