Rivermont Area Emergency Food Pantry

FPC Local Missions 0001 Rivermong Area Emergency Food PantryFirst Presbyterian Church partners with five other churches from the Rivermont area to collect food and financial resources for those in need in this community.  This Rivermont Area Emergency Food Pantry (RAEFP) has been around since the 1990s. "Clients" are referred to the RAEFP through the neighborhood churches and receive food kits.  FPCLY hosts two annual food drives (affectionally, called the "Orange Cart" drive as donated items are placed in an orange grocery cart located in the foyer) and has multiple weeks in the year where we have volunteers pack "starter kits." We also provide financial donations through our service and outreach budget and through the Presbytery of the Peaks Two Cents-A-Meal grant program.
