Food Pantry Ministry
The Food Pantry Ministry Team coordinates the collection of food items to be donated to local food pantries, including Emmaus Lutheran Church, Damien Center, Hunger Inc., and Indianapolis Public School Eleanor Skillen School #34.
We also collect white grain rice for Second Helpings. Second Helpings provides meals, which they prepare at their center, for community meals, after school programs, and community agencies.
Our donations support these food pantries and Second Helpings to provide their programs and feed families in our community who face challenges every day in providing for their families.
How can I help?
The community of RLC is very generous with their donations of time and food, allowing us to serve others throughout the city of Indianapolis who suffer food insecurity due to many different circumstances.
Volunteer your time
Members of the team support the donations to the food pantries, write announcements for church communications, and deliver items to the food pantries.
