FOOD PANTRY

The First United Methodist Church Food Pantry Outreach has been in operation for many years in Livingston Parish.

On February 19, 2018 it became a partner with CommUnity Hands. The partnership was voted and accepted during the monthly meeting.

The location of the food pantry will remain at First United Methodist Church and the current operations will remain the same. 

St. Francis Episcopal Church has been a sponsoring church for this important outreach ministry for many years. During 2014, St. Francis hosted the Food Pantry for many months during renovations at First United Methodist Church

St. Francis is committed to this outreach ministry. As Christians we are called to "minister to the sick, the friendless, and the needy."
