FBC Gleanings Food Pantry

2019 Gleanings Benefit Golf Tournament

Walk-In Freezer Fundraiser was a fantastic success!

We had 48 golfers and a bunch of wonderful sponsors that helped us raise

$18,000

The walk-in freezer will be installed in February 2020!


The FBC Mulvane Gleanings Food Pantry provides food and sundry items (including shelf stable items, bakery goods, fresh produce, and meat) to residents of Mulvane and the surrounding area including; McConnell Air Force Base,  Belle Plaine, Peck, Oxford, Rose Hill, Douglass, Haysville, and Udall. 


The food pantry has been faithfully supported by the generosity of FBC Members since 2011 making food available, at no cost, to anyone who comes to the church asking for help.  In February 2016 FBC Mulvane became an agency of the Kansas Food Bank which allowed the pantry to expand, set up regular hours, and to add a once-a-month Saturday Distribution.   In February 2018 we added Monday Meat Bundle Madness... a once-a-month meat distribution.


The Food Pantry ministry has grown to serving more than 4,700 people in 2018 (up from 3,300 in 2017) with over 1/3 of those being children and 10% being Seniors.  Gleanings is a 100% volunteer organization with participation by those age 5 to 85 who gave almost 3,000 hours in 2018.


It is a joy to see God work in the lives of our friends and neighbors as we partner with fellow FBC members, our neighbors, Mulvane Dillons, Derby Walmart Neighborhood Market, Derby Target and the Kansas Food Bank/ Feeding America to fight hunger in our area where 1 in 7 residents experience food insecurity.
