Food Pantry & Food Assistance

Our church has an on site food pantry which is kept stock with a wide variety of food for those in need. Our food pantry has non perishable food items as well as refrigerated items. If you wish to visit our food pantry, you can call the church during office hours and schedule a visit or you can come either on Sunday mornings or on Wednesday Evenings when we have our Community Dinner.

We are also a distribution site for The Emergency Food Assistance Program. This program is for low income families. You must be eligible in order to receive food from TEFAP. Eligibility is based on income. You may calculate your income and provide a signature during the distribution. Getting food from TEFAP will not affect you getting food from the Food Bank.

Distributions are held monthly on the 4th Saturday of each Month. Due to COVID, we have started doing a drive-thru style distribution. Simply drive up and a church volunteer will load the food into your vehicle.

If you have any questions regarding our food pantry or TEFAP distributions, please call the church at (316) 747-3134.
