LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Church at Rock Creek on Monday, Oct. 30, held a groundbreaking ceremony for its brand-new food bank center.
The ceremony marked a significant step forward in the church’s ongoing commitment to serving the community and addressing food insecurity.
The Church at Rock Creek has long been a source of hope and support for those in need, and the new food bank facility will play a pivotal role in expanding its ability to serve the community. Currently, the Rock Creek Food Bank serves over 300 families monthly, distributing food Tuesday through Friday of each week. The Food Bank also houses “Feed Arkansas Kids,” a ministry that provides a backpack of shelf-stable foods to 1,600 kids at the end of every week.
This development comes in response to the growing demand for food assistance and the church’s dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those facing food insecurity.
The new 12,000-square-foot facility will greatly increase the capacity of the Rock Creek Food Bank and will allow the church to receive and safely store larger quantities of food donations to expand the total number of individuals and families served daily.
This project is made possible through the generous contributions of the congregation, community partners, and volunteers who have shown consistent support of the church’s mission to take Jesus as He is to people as they are.
The Church at Rock Creek invites the entire community to join in this special occasion and be part of the positive change taking place in Little Rock. Your presence and support are invaluable as we work together to combat food insecurity and bring hope to those in need.
