PUMC supports the Petaluma Interfaith Food Pantry as a program of the Outreach Committee and with donations.

Food Pantry is open to the public each Thursday from 5:30 to 6:00 pm.

Pantry volunteers serve bags of groceries to those in need at Elim Lutheran Church at 504 Baker Street in the Social Hall. On the second Thursday of each month, our PUMC volunteers serve from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm for set up, donation time and take down.


There are no qualifications for those seeking help from the Interfaith Food Pantry — only the need. We are there to serve all. We do have a signup sheet asking the number in the household and the number of seniors, if any, in the household. People start lining up at 5 pm or before, and we start serving at 5:30 pm.

Following are the food distribution areas in Petaluma:

Tuesday from 5:30 pm — Petaluma Community Center at 721 S. McDowell Boulevard – Petaluma Salvation Army

Thursday from 5:30 pm — Interfaith Food Pantry at Elim Lutheran at 504 Baker Street
