Our first priority is the safety of our community and our volunteers.  Due to the requirement for social distancing and fewer volunteers, food pantry items are for drive through pick-up only.  For food assistance, please call 270-240-2773 and leave your name and number. We will return your call with instructions on how to pick-up food.
