    The Downtown Food Pantry Beliefs:

    • To feed the hungry of Lamar County with no regard to race, religion, sex, or country of origin.
    • To deliver the food as efficiently as possible always being cognizant of the resources we have been given.
    • All clients will be treated with the utmost respect. We will always honor their dignity and self worth. We do not try to "catch" people who may not live up to our standards of need...but to serve them as God's children.
    • All volunteers, who are each giving of their time to help others, will treat each other with Godly respect. We are the face of Jesus Christ to each person and will conduct ourselves accordingly.
    • We will not promote our individual theology. God put us all here at the food pantry to help those who need food.
    • Through our kindness, compassion, and love towards clients and volunteers alike, we are serving as true witnesses to Christ's love.
