Jesus replied: I am the bread that gives life! No one who comes to me will ever be hungry. No one who has faith in me will ever be thirsty. John 6:35
Hours of Operation
Tuesdays and Thursdays – 11:00am-12:00pm
3rd Thursday of every month – 6:00-7:00pm
Our goal is to offer families in need a seven day supply of food for each person in the household. Each family receives counseling, and then is able to pick fresh food items for their family. We will also supply families with a bag of shelf stable food. Families are eligible to come once a month to the food pantry. We also offer something that is infinitely more valuable, the Bread of Life through Jesus Christ!
Clients must bring a photo ID with them when coming to the food pantry for assistance.
“The food pantry has done so much more for me than I ever thought. Not just by providing food for me and others that I’m able to share it with but has given me a reason to cook and be more productive at home. And I feel better about myself. I don’t feel useless. You do amazing work at the food pantry not just providing food for somebody but providing hope in ways you’ll never know.”
