Pantry

Help us by working in our food pantry and soup kitchen to serve neighbors!


Both are open Monday mornings from 9:00 - 12:00 and Thursday mornings from 8:30 - 11:30. This includes setting up the soup kitchen (placing food in oven, setting up beverage station, preparing sides), serving meals in the kitchen, registering neighbors to go through the food pantry, serving as a guided shopper by taking neighbors through the food pantry one-on-one, and cleaning the dining hall and kitchen after the pantry and kitchen have closed.

Mission Statement

Westminster Neighborhood Services, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis that works with the neighborhood, individuals, businesses, service and professional groups, religious organizations and community partners to serve local families by: Providing children’s programs that meet nurturing, safety, educational and developmental needs, Providing food and clothing to meet the basic needs of neighborhood families, and Providing supportive services.

Description

For more than 30 years, Westminster Neighborhood Services, Inc. (WNS) has provided basic resources and education opportunities for at-risk children and families on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. While nationally 19.1% of people report income at or below the poverty level, here in Westminister’s neighborhood, that number is a staggering 43%.

Beginning as an ecumenical program offering summer activities for children, WNS grew and today includes afterschool, intercession, and summer programming for children and youth, a preschool, a food pantry, a soup kitchen a clothing closet, a partnership with Genessaret Free Clinic, and a Christmas Basket distribution program.

Today, Westminster is an inner city neighborhood with exponential needs, where families struggle with poverty, stress, illiteracy, joblessness and substance abuse. WNS’s programs are built on a strong foundation of volunteering and support by individuals, congregations, foundations, businesses, and civic and professional organizations.

Westminster is dedicated to help those in need with a focus on a hand-up rather than a hand out. We provide services that support families as a whole, focusing on the needs of all family members as a unit. When families are supported and self-sustaining they are able to turn outwards and transform their own community.
