Local volunteers set up a distribution system that looks much like a farmers market, distributing food to families and individuals in need throughout the scheduled time.  …  All food distributed through our mobile pantries is entirely free.

If you have need any time, please contact us. We always have food assistance available at First Presbyterian.  Call our office manager, Lauri Struve at 605-480-0859 anytime, or stop during evening or morning office hours.
