Joseph Project Food Pantry

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Joseph Project Food Pantry is closed. Plans to reopen will be coming soon!

The Joseph Project, named for the Joseph story in Genesis 41, is a partnership between Ashland Place United Methodist Church and the Dumas Wesley Community Center. The food pantry is open to all in need and completely volunteer-supported and operated every Thursday from 10:00-12:00 Noon at Dumas Wesley Community Center. The pantry is able to serve 100 households on a first come, first served basis. Participants can receive supplemental food once a month. Picture I.D. and proof of income required for new participants. 

Food is the most basic of life’s provisions and we know there are individuals and families in our community lacking bodily nourishment on a daily basis. In 2020, the Joseph Project Food Pantry provided 1,786 household with supplemental food. Of those households, 2,493 were adults, 1,283 were children and 1,412 were seniors. 

Volunteers are needed each week to help with Tuesday shopping trips to the Bay Area Food Bank, Wednesday afternoons to pack food boxes, and Thursday mornings to distribute 100 boxes of food from 10:00-12:00. We are always in need of prayer, monetary donations, food donations, boxes for packing, and magazines. If you would like to volunteer, make a donation, or get additional information please call Leigh Faircloth at 251.478.6356 or email thejosephprojectfoodpantry@gmail.com. The Ashland Place United Methodist Church office is located at 15 Wisteria Avenue, Mobile, Alabama 36607.

“If you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight.” – Isaiah 58:10
