Food Pantry

"... for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and visited me." -- Matthew 25: 35-36

 

“And all of them ate and were filled ....”

We have had a food pantry, off and on, for over 40 years.

 

Our food pantry is open:

Monday’s from 9:30 AM until 11:00 AM.

We serve the 38122, 38112 & 38108 zip codes.

We are Midsouth Food Bank food pantry, those wanting assistance should bring a picture ID and piece of mail with a current address in one of our zip codes for the Midsouth Food Bank paperwork.  We ask people to come no more than 3 times in six months and not to come more than once in 30 days.  We have a separate non- Midsouth Food Bank pantry with much smaller resources that can serve people who are unable to fulfill Midsouth Food Bank requirements (this is called an emergency serve and generally can happen only once).  

Food Banks are a stop gap that help people get through some larger problem.  Help us pray for healing, forgiveness and patience from the Lord for all those who find themselves in our food pantries.  May God's grace be with both our food pantry clients and those called to serve those clients to His glory.  May His will be done in our lives.  In Jesus name. Amen   

Donations are always welcome.

Please consider making a monthly or weekly donation for an individual or family this holiday season.
