Every first and third Friday of the month, volunteers from Fargo Faith and other area churches come together to provide groceries for needy families in the Fargo-Moorhead area. On a typical Friday, the Fargo Faith Food Ministry will serve anywhere between 100-150 people.
The mission of the Fargo Faith Food Ministry is to help the less fortunate by distributing food to lessen their financial burden of a grocery bill.
Faith Food Ministry is funded by food or cash donations, grants, Fill the Dome food and the Great Plains Food Bank.
Any person who is need of food to feed themselves or their families and cannot afford to do so are invited to receive food from the Faith Food Ministry. We distribute food on the first and third Fridays of each month from 1:30-3 p.m. All that we require is a photo ID. If you have not received food from us in 2020, you will also need to fill out a short form to receive food. This form is to verify your identity and the size of your family. Other than this form, no referrals are required and we will never ask any questions about your situation- all those who are in need of food are welcome. Clients are welcome to receive food both Fridays in the month if necessary.
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have adjusted our distribution procedures:
We ask that clients drive into our parking lot entering from the west entrance off of 10th Street.
NOTE THAT THE PARKING LOT DOES NOT OPEN UNTIL 1:00 P.M.
Traffic Control volunteers will direct you in the parking lot.
Vehicles will be moved through the parking lot towards the distribution point by Traffic Control. At the distribution point, you will then be directed by a Food Pantry representative to exit your vehicle to go to the front entrance to register and receive your carts of groceries.
YOU MUST BE WEARING A MASK IN ORDER TO REGISTER AND RECEIVE YOUR FOOD.
You will then take your carts of food to your vehicle and load your vehicle. Once you complete that, you will return the cart(s) to be sanitized for the next clients.
We are always in need of servants to help out on these Fridays! We look for help with setup and stocking in the morning, help serving the food in the afternoon (we serve the community from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.), and help tearing down and cleaning up after the serving is complete. Just come on over and help or CONTACT US for more information.
