The food bank program provides boxes of food to our neighbors based on the size of the family. Click here to see our year-to-date results. We depend on donations of money and food from our member churches and individuals in our community, from various corporations in Marion County, from food drives in the schools.

The food bank is open from 10am until noon on Tuesday and Saturday of each week except for major holidays. The food bank is an emergency food source for our neighbors. 

As you may imagine our Food Expenses have been increasing in the same way as your personal food expenses.

You will notice that our expenses have been drifting upward over the last three years.

With nearly 20% of Marion County's Families being below the poverty line1. we sure could use your help.
