About God\'s Food Pantry
God\'s Food Pantry was begun by the Sisters of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ in 1984 out of their convent on 13th street at the Holy Savior Church campus. It was later administered by two Sisters of St. Joseph. When they left the parish, the responsibilty was assumed by a dedicated staff of parishioners. The Pantry moved to it\'s current location in the St. Peter Claver complex at 1209 N. Indiana in 1999. Not much has changed since those early days except the increased number of people seeking assistance. Food is distributed to between 550 and 650 families twice a month. The client demographics are across all ethnic groups and geographic areas of Wichita.
The Pantry is a \"walk-in\" agency which means that there is no need verification process - anybody who comes will be served. There is a minimal registration process and all clients receive the same amount of food regardless of household size. It is very moving to see people standing in line in all types of weather, often with children in tow, for a simple bag of groceries. The Pantry is staffed entirely by volunteers from several parishes. It is funded by private donations which are used to acquire food from the Kansas Food Bank and, when necessary, local retail markets. Several parishes have ongoing food drives which are an essential ingredient in keeping the shelves stocked.
