Who we are…
The Mission Community Food Pantry opened its doors in late October 2020 with the purpose of serving those in our local communities who face hunger and food insecurity. With the support of Trinity and the Mission community, we strive to make a difference in the lives of those who need our help. We serve with smiling hearts and welcoming arms.
We want to thank you for your generosity in supporting the pantry through your prayers, donations of food items, hygiene items, paper goods, and monetary donations. Every donation is truly appreciated. We also thank those who give their time as volunteers. We became a Harvesters partner in 2020 and are blessed with the support of this partnership. Like everyone else, we have dealt with supply chain issues and other challenges throughout 2022 but have seen God at work through all of this, providing just what we need to serve others.
