FOOD PANTRY MISSION
The River of Life Church Food Pantry’s mission is to secure and distribute food to the needy in the name of Jesus in an effort to alleviate hunger in the Coulee Region. Our Pantry is a 100% volunteer organization. Have you ever known what it means to be hungry? Have you ever wondered where your family's next meal would come from? We have people right here in our community that know these realities all too well. Jesus told us that whenever we serve "the least of these" we are serving Him.

Our Food Pantry secures food and non-food essentials (toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, etc.) through purchases and donations. Donated items are received from the Hunger Task Force and TEFAP. Many items are donated by individuals, churches, businesses and local grocery chains such as Festival Foods.
We operate a "choice" pantry. This means each household coming to our pantry is permitted to walk through the pantry choosing the food and household items that they want and/or need. The amount of food and non-food items a client is permitted is based upon their family (household) size.
All first time participants are required to show proof of address for each adult individual in the household (i.e., energy bill, driver's license) and proof of all children in the household.
DURING COVID-19 PARTICIPANTS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED IN THE FOOD PANTY. ITEMS WILL BE BOXED/BAGGED AND BROUGHT OUT TO YOUR VEHICLE AT THE FOOD PANTRY ENTRANCE.
