First Presbyterian Food Pantry
Ottumwa, IA 52501
Details: The First Presbyterian Food Pantry was established in the Spring of 2012. We opened our doors to our neighbors in our community the first Wednesday of May and served over 60 families the first month. Since then the numbers of families requesting assistance has grown substantially. We strive to meet each need with Christ-like compassion, respect and dignity. The Food Pantry is directed by three dedicated church members as well as a wealth of member volunteers. We feel blessed to have this opportunity to show God’s love to those around us. Our hours of operation are the first Thursday of every month from 3:00-5:30. Please enter through the west side of the church on Marion Street to register and receive information.
