Parcels of Hope Food Assistance

 NOTE: As of 2/25/2022, Parcels of Hope will be closed while we reorganize our operation. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Parcels of Hope is the food pantry of our church, headed by Myrt Ostrowski, which seeks to help meet the food needs of those in our town.   We are open every Friday from 10AM to 1 PM, and anyone is welcome to come by for two Fridays every month and receive free food aid.   The setup is akin to a small grocery store so that you can pick up what you like from the shelves and into a shopping cart (Note: currently, because of increased COVID cases in Ward County, we are taking boxes and bags of food to patrons who can wait outside the building).   Seniors receive a special pre-packaged box which is part of a federal food assistance program that Parcels of Hope participates in.

Everyone is welcome to come, and we would be more than happy to assist you with your food needs.
