Bethel Gospel Tabernacle's Food Pantry continues to be one of the best options for residents of South Jamaica who are struggling to make their paychecks cover food and other essentials. It is also a boom for low income seniors and large numbers of people living on food stamps and public assistance grants.
Every Wednesday between 11 a.m. and 12 noon, a line snakes its way around the block, filled with people vying for a coveted number, in order to collect a bag filled with nutritious food stuffs that will last about three days. Bethel’s Food Pantry is well known and provides food to more than 1,500 people per month.
The food pantry provided 51,131 food packages to individuals in 2015
