Juneau’s Largest Food Pantry Serving 150 to 200 Individuals and Families Each Week

Open Mondays noon to 4:30.  We are open all holidays.

 

Currently Operating Upstairs at RLC

We are located upstairs Resurrection Lutheran Church  at 740 W 10th Street, Juneau, Alaska 99801.

COVID-19 Pandemic

The RLC Food Pantry is still allowing patrons to make food selections (rather than providing pre-bagged food).  However, we require all patrons to wear a face mask (which we can provide), or we can bring food outside to you.

See the Food Banks Adapt to Coronavirus article  in the Juneau Empire quoting our own Pastor Karen Perkins.

Donations are Always Welcome

While we purchase the bulk of the food we distribute from the Southeast Alaska Food Bank, we accept donations of packaged food – protein (meats, beans, etc.) is especially welcome.  Easiest to donate on Mondays from 10 to  4.  However, call the church at (907) 586-2380 to arrange other times.  We also accept donations of your time.  Contact the church at rlcoffice@ak.net. And, of course, monetary donations are also appreciated:


Land Acknowledgment

RLC Food Pantry would like to acknowledge that we are on historical land of the A’akw Kwáan and T’aaḵu Kwáan, the Indigenous people of this land.  For more than 10,000 years, Alaska Native people have been and continue to be integral to the well-being of our community.  We are grateful to be part of this community, and to honor the culture, tradition and perseverance of the Tlingit people.  Please forgive our missteps as we attempt to right some of the wrongs of the past.  Gunalchéesh.”

Mission Statement

RLC Food Pantry is part of Resurrection Lutheran Church’s (RLC) community service programs addressing immediate needs of refreshing and nourishing the body, mind and soul.  Along with Juneau Live! Studio (nourishes the mind), RLC Warming Shelter (refreshing the body), and RLC worship services (nourishing the soul), RLC Food Panty nourishes the body by operating the largest food pantry in Juneau feeding 150 to 200 individuals and families each week, allowing patrons to select their own foods in an unique 100’ COVID-safe mobile food line (paid for with a Rasmuson grant in 2021)  The church believes these community service programs embody its mission to promote spiritual growth in Christ and service to all people.
