We want to encourage anyone in need to come to our Food Pantry! You need not be a member of NewSong Church or resident of San Dimas. We do ask for a valid address and that you limit visits to every two weeks so we can assist as many families as possible.
Food distribution takes place on NewSong's campus just inside the Worship Center (on the northwest side) on these days of the month:
- 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays, 7 – 8 p.m.
- 2nd and 4th Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
- Every Sunday, 12:30 – 1 p.m.

Serve with Us
There are at least three ways you can serve with us and help the Pantry continue to operate:
Distribution Volunteer: Becoming a distribution volunteer means helping to meet, greet, and serve people that come to the Pantry during distribution
hours. Volunteers facilitate getting our guests the pantry item(s) they need and showing the guests some distinctive Christian hospitality.
Courier: Join our pick-up team that meets in La Verne for twice-monthly deliveries to help keep the Pantry stocked.
Compassion Sunday Curbside Volunteer: Be available on the third Sunday of every month to stand-by the curbside at our west entrance to the NewSong Church parking lot. There we make it easy for people coming to the services to drop off Pantry items, which are then stocked in our pantry.
Please email us to volunteer for any of these three positions: Carrie Ryan or Marissa Tiddle at ThePantry@newsongsd.org
