In 1982, the Food Pantry at First Christian Church was begun as a way to serve the needs of some of its own families. That first year, the Christian Food Pantry served an average of 89 families each month. With the expansion of the food pantry's mission to serve the community, four neighboring churches "First Presbyterian, First United Methodist, St. Andrew's Episcopal, and Trinity Lutheran "joined in the effort to provide this service with donations and volunteers. The 1984 annual report showed a 38% increase in demand from 1983. (from Celebrating our Story', œGive to ... God the things that are God's.
