The Friendship Pantry

"Introducing people to God's love through the love of God's people."

What we do:

The Friendship Pantry is way to reach out to people with needs that other organizations don't meet.  Guests receive a month's supply of grooming and cleaning supplies with respect and compassion.  We offer conversation, refreshments and prayer.  Along with the pantry items, we usually have other used household items for guests to choose from.

Guests frequently thank us repeatedly and tell us their concerns.  It is often difficult not to cry while praying with them.  Although we give them a month’s supply of cleaning and personal grooming items, many times after hearing their stories, it seems so insignificant.  Please keep praying for the volunteers and guests. 

​We are located at 2616 Ave A, Council Bluffs.  If you are in need or know someone in need come visit us!  Someone will pray for you and provide for your needs.
