Food Pantry

We feed those in need.

The Food Pantry located at Olmsted Community Church is a project of many churches and groups working together in our community.  Sponsored by Christians in Action and hosted at OCC, the food pantry provides essentials (food, paper goods, toiletries) as they are available to persons in need.  We collect items year-round, and give a special emphasis to a Thanksgiving collection known as the “Turkey Hunt”.
