FOOD ROOM HOURS ARE CHANGING. Beginning in AUGUST 2020, FOOD BOXES WILL BE DISTRIBUTED EVERY TUESDAY FROM 9-11 AM
“Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. . . .'”
Our goal is to help feed hungry people in Clarksville & Montgomery County.

Thank you to all the volunteers who heard the call and are showing up on Tuesday mornings to help. This program could not work if it weren’t for all the wonderful volunteers–church members as well as others from the community–who show up to help us week after week.
On the average, we feed 102 families each week–about 315 family members. Several of these are new clients, who mentioned that this was their first time coming in for food. It is heartwarming to hear the wonderful comments, thanking us for opening our church for this program. Some of our clients have become volunteers with us because they have seen first hand what this program means to them and their families.
**A special note due to COVID-19 and the Lord’s Pantry!** At this time, we are open each Tuesday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Due to social distancing and the requirements of our church, we will pass out 1 pre-made box of canned goods as well as a variety of items from the Second Harvest donation via a drive thru/walk up service. Our volunteers will place those boxes inside your car for you. On the first Tuesday of each month, our clients will also receive a hygiene bag that consists of items such as toothpaste, soap, shampoo, toilet paper, and shaving cream.
The 4th Tuesday of every month is USDA Day. On this day people receiving food must show proof of residence in Montgomery County. When you line up to get your bag, you must have proof of residence ready with the answers to the following questions: Do you receive food stamps? Families First? Social Security Income? Public Housing? How much is your household income? How many are in your household? The USDA requires this information.
We work with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. We also benefit periodically from several groups in Clarksville-Montgomery County that hold food drives and donate the food to The Lord’s Pantry Ministry. We receive food from the Postal System Food Drive, Clarksville Christmas Parade donations, and the City Bus Food Drive, in addition, food and monetary donations from individuals and businesses. If you would like to hold a food drive or donate, contact us at email@example.com
