Kingdom Come Food Pantry
One of Bethany’s ongoing mission projects is donating non-perishable food items to the Oconto Falls Kingdom Come Food Pantry. Items can be brought to the church at any time and placed in the missions closet at the bottom of the Narthex stairway. Someone then routinely takes the items to the food pantry.
Kingdom Come is the largest food pantry in Oconto Falls, serving close to 2,000 people a month. Oconto County is one of the most impoverished counties in Wisconsin. At least 85 percent of the food they distribute (about 22,000 pounds a month) comes from the “Feeding America” program; the balance from private donors.
“Nobody is turned away; if people are hungry they get food.”
