Joseph's Storehouse -- the Food Pantry at Gloria Dei Open Thursdays from 9:00 to 11:00 am and Saturdays from 10:00 to 12:00 pm, 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 2019, the pantry served over 4,000 families and 15,000 individuals.
The Joseph’s Storehouse Closet opened at the food pantry in January 2023, and its visitors benefit weekly from a selection of clothes, shoes, costume jewelry, and small housewares. We do need to continually restock the Closet to keep up with the demand. If you have gently-used clothes and household items you no longer need, please consider donating them to the Closet. Donations can be dropped off at the pantry Tuesday through Saturday mornings. Any questions, contact the Gloria Dei church office at 631-271-2466.
