Interfaith Ministries of Greater Modesto was organized about 40 years ago by a group of caring and sharing individuals and organizations working toward the common good of helping those in need. Since that time, Interfaith Ministries has served thousands of individuals and families in Modesto, Ceres, Salida, Empire and Waterford. Services are available to low-income people who have proof of residency and income.
Our main services are food, clothing and the food coalition. This year, 2012, we are providing groceries to over 1000 people each month. Children, make up over 50% of people we served.
Our food coalition is made up of over 50 nonprofits and congregations. These groups pick up surplus foods and bread weekly. That food is used to feed thousands of people throughout Stanislaus County, including congregational dinners, breakfasts for the homeless, groceries to shut ins and many more food related activities.
Our clothes closet provides clean and sized garments free of charge to individuals and families weekdays, Monday through Friday, from 1:00p.m. to 4:30p.m.
Our facility is also open on the 4th Saturday of each month providing pantry and clothes closet services simultaneously. This is a volunteer-run service open from 9:00a.m. to 12:00p.m.
Interfaith Ministries operates from 120 Kerr Avenue, Modesto at the entrance to the Airport District, one of the poorest neighborhoods in our community. Our facility houses the food pantry and clothes closet, administrative offices and warehouse functions. Clients may receive services from the Clothes Closet and Choice Pantry every 30 days.
