The RBC Food Pantry serves up to 120 families from our surrounding community each week.

Guests to the RBC Food Pantry receive a bag of staple food items once per week. In addition, our guests receive bags of overstock, dated, or perishable items from local stores and restaurants. Fruits and vegetables are provided through the RBC Community Garden.

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

1 John 3:17-18
