Food Bag List

Please use this list when assembling a food bag for neighborhood distribution. Any amount donated of the items listed would be greatly appreciated, or you can assemble a complete bag. Bring your items or assembled bag by the church office Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or on Sunday mornings and place it in the shopping cart located in the narthex (entryway to the John Wesley Hall).

Monetary donations are always welcome. Our volunteers are able to purchase items when they are on sale in large quantities. Please make checks payable to: Wesley UMC and write food pantry on the memo line. You can drop your donation in the offering on Sunday or mail it to the church office at 1343 E. Barstow Ave., Fresno, CA 93710


Why do we ask for specific items?

We often have several folks in the office requesting a food bag at the same time. It makes the distribution of the bags much easier for our volunteers when the contents are all the same.


Each Food Bag Typically Contains the Following Items:

  • Canned Fruit (1 can)
  • Cheerios (generic brand okay, 1 Large box)
  • Canned Vegetables (2 cans)
  • Tuna (1 can)
  • Peanut Butter (1 jar)
  • Ramen Noodles (2 packages)
  • Macaroni & Cheese (1 box)
  • Toilet tissue (1 roll)
  • Soap (1 bar)

Wesley will add 1 pound of Rice and 1 pound of Pinto Beans to each bag (donations of pinto beans and rice are always appreciated).
