Mission Statement

Live the Christian principles of our member churches by providing a continuous and reliable source of food and assistance to those in need in the Affton community.

Description

The "food pantry" was dedicated on February 21, 2004, as a project of the St. George Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The Pantry doors were opened for business at 4975 Heege Road in Affton on the following Tuesday. Five families were qualified as members during the first week. The operation continued with modest growth until July 29, 2006 when, in a meeting of seven area churches committed to the mission of the pantry, the Affton Christian Food Pantry was born. This action expanded the area served, the number of families that were being helped in addition to the size of the support group.

With steady growth, the Pantry soon found itself in need of a larger facility to more adequately meet the needs of its clients. Through the desire and commitment of member churches and donors, the Food Pantry was able to move to its current location at 4960 Heege Road, as part of the newly renovated St. George Parish Center. The Pantry offically opened its doors here in early 2010, with a beautiful dedication service and open house being held on April 18th, 2010.

The Affton Christian Food Pantry continues to operate as an officially sanctioned not-for-profit charitable organization, qualified to enjoy some state and federal tax benefits. It is now in the proper position to fulfill the promise of its stated mission.
