Joseph's Storehouse -- the Food Pantry at Gloria Dei Open Thursdays from 9:30-11:15 am and Saturdays from 11:00 am-1:00pm Joseph's Storehouse operated for eight years on Elwood Road in East Northport before moving to Gloria Dei in October 2018. A large and busy food pantry offers produce, meat and fish, refrigerated and frozen foods, baked goods, canned goods, etc. Affiliated with Long Island Cares and Island Harvest food banks, we offer “client choice shopping,” which means that clients may select their own food based on family needs and preferences. In 2018, the pantry served over 4,000 families and 15,000 individuals. Clothing and other household items are also sometimes available.
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts Gloria Dei sponsors Boy Scout Troop 34 and Cub Scout Pack 406. The scouts are active in church outreach through our Food Pantry, neighborhood clean-ups, and any number of other service projects to benefit the community. We love our Scouts!
