Update from the Mount Vernon Baptist Food Pantry: 

The Mt. Vernon Baptist Food Pantry was established to provide food and other products to individuals and families in our community and surrounding areas who are in need of assistance, for as long as such resources are made available. During the 15 years we have been in operation, we have been fortunate to be able to provide these services to anyone who asked for assistance, regardless of their home location. 

Unfortunately, the time has come when we can no longer financially support areas that are so distant from our own community and who have access to other food support services. Effective September 1, 2016, the Mt. Vernon Baptist Food Pantry will restrict our service area to our local community and the towns that surround it. 

In determining the towns to eliminate from our service area, we considered two factors: (1) The town is not in our local community nor is it adjacent to it. (2) There is a food pantry available that is nearer to the individual/family home location. Using these two factors, effective September 1, 2016, the Mt. Vernon Baptist Food Pantry will no longer provide services to individuals and families from these towns/cities:

  • Beebe
  • Conway
  • Damascus
  • Heber Springs
  • Judsonia
  • Mayflower
  • McRae
  • Searcy

Although this has been a difficult decision for our church, we are confident the steps we are taking will allow us to continue our mission in aiding the food insecure in our areas and ask for your understanding, support, and prayers. 

Thank you and God bless!
