FISH Pantry

1st UMC Lockport supports the local township food pantry. The program provides grocery items for area residents all year long and is a tremendous help to families in crisis or living on a fixed income.

On the 1st Sunday of the month during the Children's Sermon, the children pull their wagon up the aisle to collect food and monetary donations. Donations can also be made by contacting the pantry at the phone number below.

Families in need of this service should come to the Lockport Township Supervisors Office at 222 East 9th Street, Lockport and bring proof of residency.
