During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Food Pantry is available to residents of Allen, Fairview, and Lucas to provide food assistance during the current crisis. The Food Pantry is serving local families by providing a free food box via drive-thru pick-up.
Residents will need to show proof of residency by showing a Texas ID or a current utility bill. Food boxes are available to families every two weeks.
Our community is experiencing a dramatic increase in need. Our Food Pantry is here to help, but we can't do it without you. When you are out shopping, please pick up a little extra for our Food Pantry, but please be respectful of quantity limits posted in most stores. You may drop off at the food pantry during pantry hours or the church office.
