Our Food Pantry Needs Restocking

1 in 4 Arkansas Kids Need Our Help!

Nationwide, one in five kids are "food insecure." But here are home in Arkansas that number is 27.7%. Simply put . . . that means these kids and their families have limited or uncertain access to food. Ann Willoughby has quietly been working behind the scenes to meet the food needs of area families, but she needs our help to restock the pantry shelves so this much-needed ministry can continue. We need non-perishable or canned food items. The next time you head to the grocery store, please pick up additional items for the church pantry. Food can be left on the counter in the church kitchen. Thank you!
