Mission and Vision
This ministry exists to bless those in need, both physically and spiritually, in Rockland County. We are a Food Bank (not a Food Pantry). We collect non-perishable food items (list provided below) and deliver those goods to Food Pantries who are already doing great work in Rockland County. We are also now assisting individuals who are re-entering society after being incarcerated.
There are many wonderful resources and non-profit services available in Rockland County, including 48 Food Pantries. Our mission is to partner with these organizations to bring help and wholeness to members of the community. See below for the list of Food Pantries and all other links.
If you are a member of Risen King Church and need assistance, or if you would like to talk or pray with a pastor, please complete a Care Request Card linked below. Please visit the links below to learn more about resources and services that are available.
