The Gleanings Food Pantry Ministry

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 Bonus Bundle Monday ... a once-a-month meat and bread distribution.  In 2020 the Lord provided a 10'x20' Walk-In Freezer to better manage the volume of food donations.



The Food Pantry ministry has grown to serving more than 6,600 people in 2019 (up from 4,700 in 2018) 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 over 3,600 hours in 2019.



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, Derby Dillons Marketplace, Derby Aldi and the Kansas Food Bank/ Feeding America to fight hunger in our area where 1 in 7 residents experience food insecurity.
