In October West Portland Baptist Church hosts our annual Apple Butter Festival with vendors on site (including food) and fresh cooked apple butter available for donation. The profit the church would make is fully donated to the Brocton/Portland Food Pantry. The pantry is located on the church campus but is a separate 501(c)3 ministry run by the local Brocton/Portland Ministerial Association.  
In spite of rain, Apple Butter Festival 2023 was a success with a good crowd attending and a record amount of funds of approximately $4600.00 raised to support the Nina’s Kitchen Brocton/ Portland Food Pantry!
Our 10th Apple Butter Festival is scheduled for October 12, 2024. It is not too early to pray for some warm weather and sunshine for next year!
