Shepherd’s Heart Food Pantry

A friendly and dignifying shopping experience.

We are here to meet the needs specific to your circumstances and share with you the compassion of Christ.

We know that each guest has a unique story and situation. Come visit us, and together we’ll figure out exactly what is needed for you and your family. It is our desire and our goal to meet your needs and to share with you the care, hope, and love of Christ through that service. Everyone who has a need for food is welcome to use our pantry.
