First Food Pantry

“Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.”

Our Food Pantry is one the most significant ministries in Marion as well as Smyth County. Grants have been plentiful for food which has been purchased and will be distributed. However, a gift to help with normal operations would be appreciated and is needed. Our Food Pantry goes a long way to help people in need and address food insecurity. 


Please go to our GIVE page for all of our giving options.


The FUMC Food Pantry is a monthly outreach to the hungry in Marion and Smyth County.


FUMC Food Pantry – every fourth Tuesday of each month
