Missional Food Pantry

Open Every 3rd Tuesday from 6:30pm-8:00pm

Indy Vineyard Missional Food Pantry serves those in need, both physically and spiritually, with the unconditional love of God by providing food, prayer and forming relationships with our recipients. In addition, our team offers Bible study and children's ministry for our volunteers' and recipients' families. Our hope is to see families grow from their current situation to a life of abundance. 

"Mary & pantry volunteers, thank you so much for always being there for me and my family. The food is wonderful and the prayer is always comforting and encouraging. I feel loved and valued each month that I attend your pantry night. God bless you all for all that you are doing for the LORD and for others."

The History of Indy Vineyard Missional Food Pantry

The food pantry has been a part of Indy Vineyard’s outreach program for many years. In 2003 we started delivering bags of food to the apartment complex next to our church. Food deliveries expanded to several apartments in the Castleton area and the monthly food pantry was birthed. Community Nights began in 2010 — providing groceries and meals at our church for those in need. 

In 2017 our church partnered with Faith Hope and Love Community. Through FHL, our leaders and volunteers were trained to understand the deeper needs of people, providing both spiritual and physical food and directing them to refer individuals to other community resources for long-term sustainability. Food is donated to the pantry from generous donors, and received through local food services such as Midwest Food Bank. Our Care Team provides prayer for the recipients, followup with them and continue to lift them up in prayer. Through this training our Indy Vineyard Missional Food Pantry was born and has continued to be an integral part of Indy Vineyard outreach. 

“When I was in grad school I was broke. I didn’t have food. I remember going into my cupboard and all I had was rice. That’s what I ate for two, three days. And so I think that’s what spurred me to always have a heart and compassion for people. And I knew I could call, I had my parents as backup. But I wasn’t’ gonna ask them I was too proud, but at least I knew I had [them]. Some people don’t even have that! I always think about that. What if I didn’t have that option. I think that’s what spurred me to get involved. People are so awesome, you know? I think when people are in hard times it draws you closer to the Lord, and sometimes it actually strengthens my faith to see their faith.”
