The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry opened in December 2004, grew rapidly, and provided food to many hundreds of families per month. In 2022 we partnered with Northwest Arkansas Food Bank to increase our reach to families with food insecurity through Feed Rogers.
This is our attempt to continue answering Jesus’ call to feed the hungry. To meet Him in the poor whom we serve. There is a great need in the community and in our own parish for emergency food assistance. Many families have difficulty meeting their basic needs. Please continue to support those efforts.
History of the Food Pantry
Before 2004 our parish operated a small pantry by appointment only. Many people would come to the parish office regularly asking for assistance. There was a clear need for a larger food pantry with regular hours of operation. So we did, in 2004.
Food, paper goods, and diapers were obtained from monthly Sharing Sunday collections, donations from individuals and vendors, Walmart Neighborhood Market, the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank, the United Way Gift In Kind Warehouse. We also received food from the USDA Commodities Program.
Food was provided to families in need in Benton County without regard for race, religion, or national origin. Families were asked to provide identification and proof of residence in Benton County. Basic information including names, addresses, and number of persons in the household was collected. Families returned monthly if needed. In 2022 we founded Feed Rogers in partnership with Northwest Arkansas Food Bank.
