The pantry is in need of the following:
  • clothing for Newborn – 24 month old children (high need)
  • winter and spring clothing
  • mens’ shirts and pants
  • jeans all sizes
  • sweaters
  • coats for adults and children
  • blankets and bedding
  • pots and pans
  • small children toys 
  • canned and boxed food items 
We are needing your help.  Our pantry is in need for canned and boxed food for our emergency food area. During these past 2 months, we have had several families in need of food right away and our supply has become low.  If you can help with this request, please bring those canned and boxed food items to the pantry. We continue looking for a  used refrigerated van or small truck for help in getting food supplies to the pantry. If you might have those items and would like to donate them, please drop them off during our business hours at the pantry.


A heart-felt Thank You to those who helped clear the snow so that our pantry could open.  A HUGE Thank You to Ed and Doris Bridges. What a wonderful blessing!  Thank you to all those wonderful people and organizations who continue to donate clothing, household items, food, and money.  Thank you to  Calvary UMC on your grant for the portable a/c for our back room.  Thank You to Farmers State Bank for your grant toward the purchase of a refrigerated van.  Your generous donations are such a blessing to those in need within our community.   

Volunteers are the key to the success of the Eastern Plains Community Pantry (EPCP).  You can make that real difference in helping serve the people of our community.  


Our Pantry continues to serve more and more needy families.  This past month we served over 1,216 people.  We have 36 volunteers that donated 778.75 hours during the month of February.  We picked up over 5,000 lbs. of food to help our needy families.    (Stats for 2018: Poundage – 69,965, Households – 1,630, Individuals – 4,515, New Households – 263) Thank you to our volunteers who use their own vehicles to pick up that food. The “Volunteers of the Quarter” are Sister Joyce and Elder Tim Williams.     If you or you know of someone who would love to volunteer in any way, just drop by the pantry to let us know or call us 719-347-3062.
