According to the USDA, Oklahoma ranks eighth in the nation in the number of people per capita who are hungry. We are seventh in the nation in those who are food insecure, which means that the food intake of some household members is reduced and normal eating patterns disrupted because the household lacks money and other resources for food. This is especially true for the people of the inner city.
Inner City Church’s addresses these needs through its food pantry and food co-op. The food pantry is the 4th Saturdays of every month and provides groceries to 75 families. An additional 30 families are part of a monthly food co-op that meets on the 2nd Saturdays. Our team is also available on a daily basis to distribute an emergency box of food to families facing an unexpected shortage.
Volunteers are welcome to assist on food pantry days (4th Saturdays). Please arrive at the church at 10:30am to assist in unloading groceries and preparing them for distribution at 12pm. To arrange bringing a group of volunteers, please contact us.
Donations to our food pantry are greatly appreciated, as they make this program possible. We accept perishable and non-perishable food, as well as related items such as refrigerators and freezers.
