About the Food Pantry
The mission of the First Presbyterian Church Food Pantry is to share God’s love by providing food for individuals and families in need who reside in Benton County, Arkansas. The Food Pantry is a key component of our broader mission to “serve the needs of ‘the least of these’, our brothers and sisters, in the name of Jesus Christ”.
If You Need Help
The Food Pantry is open to Benton County residents on Saturday mornings from 9:00–11:00 am. You must bring a photo ID and proof of residency in Benton County (such as an electric or gas bill with your address). You may seek assistance from the Food Pantry once per calendar month. Call the church office for more information at 479-273-5450.
Our Food Pantry is currently operating as a drive-through. Current COVID precautions will be observed. Please line up in your car in the south parking lot and Food Pantry volunteers will assist you.
