Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop

February 2, 2023

Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop
“Ruby’s Pop-Up Pantry”
3rd Thursday of each Month at
First United Methodist Church

230 East Skyline Pkwy, Duluth

For a $25 donation (cash only, no EBT or checks at this time), participants will receive an abundant amount of food. This is a drive-through distribution. Use the parking lot entrance off of Skyline Parkway and follow directions from the friendly parking lot crew. Arrive with an empty trunk, so volunteers can load at least two boxes of food into your vehicle. Bringing two empty boxes to exchange would be appreciated.

There are no income or residency requirements to participate in Ruby’s Pantry—just a want or need to stretch your grocery dollars. There is no typical food share. We usually have a preliminary food list the day before distribution. Like us on Facebook to receive updates at

Interested in volunteering? Visit or call First United Methodist at 727-5021. Volunteers are needed throughout the afternoon and evening of the distribution day. Currently, all volunteers are masking to protect guests and volunteers. For more information: Ruby’s Pantry
