• Reapers food ministry

    Our vision is to Reach Every Altoona Person In Need Gladly. We do this by purchasing food to give to those in need that live in Altoona and the surrounding area. Every 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, we give groceries to families in need. To date we give food to 300-400 families twice a month. As we give out this food we seek to share the Love of Christ verbally.

    "I thought Reapers was just a food bank. I was wrong. It is believers sharing Christ and feeding our community with food and God's goodness." - Molly

    "Reapers is a wonderful ministry. It has helped my daughter and I with much needed food. I like to hear the sharing of scripture and prayer requests." - Sue

    For more information on how you can become a part of this ministry, please give us a call at 814-943-8162, or if you would like to give you can do through our online giving.
