We hope you will continue to support our monthly food collections. The need for food in the Richmond area is still great. Each month, your donations are helping fill the food pantries at both the Church Hill Wellness Center and the South Richmond Baptist Center.

The food share team thanks everyone for their donations of paper bags these last few months, they are now fully stocked on paper bags.

River Road Church has a long history of working in many capacities with our three Baptist Centers: Church Hill, Oregon Hill, and South Richmond. We have donated food and other needed items, and we have gone to the centers and provided services and care.

Welborne Community Pantry

Volunteers–Mondays, December 13 & 20

Three volunteers are needed to assist with writing pre-scripted cards at Welborne Community Pantry for 60-90 minutes. If you are available or have additional questions, please contact Bonnie Livick.


We encourage those who would like to continue donating to Welborne UMC food pantry to drop off their specified items directly to Welborne: 9:30-11:00 a.m. on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays. If more convenient, you may drop off those bags of food on First Sunday Food Share, but please mark those bags with a LARGE W since they have specific food requests for Welborne. You can check Welborne’s Facebook for details and updates.
