The Affton Christian Food Pantry is an ecumenical 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to serving those in need in the Affton area. Our mission is to serve as a continuous and reliable source of food for all families in need, regardless of race, creed, or nationality. In existence since 2004, we are operated by 15 Affton area churches, which assist us in providing governance, volunteers, food drives, and financial assistance. The ACFP continues to grow, to meet the needs of the Affton community. In April 2012, Church of the Reformation – Lutheran joined the ACFP. In 2013, Affton Presbyterian Church and New Apostolic Church joined our ranks, bringing our member churches to 14.
ACFP continues to expand its fundraising to include a direct mail campaign in the spring, a trivia night in August, and a beer dinner in the fall. The Executive Director seeks out grant opportunities to help the pantry meet its mission.
ACFP looks forward to the future, to serving those in need in our community, and to strengthening partnerships with area schools, businesses, and community organizations, knowing that together, we can make a difference!
