Donating to the Ainsworth Ministerial Food Pantry Helps to Fight Hunger

The holidays are commonly associated with a table full of delicious food - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, vegetables and an abundance of desserts - however, for some families it’s a struggle to put even the most essential of food items on the table.

The Ainsworth Ministerial Food Pantry, located in the basement of the Zion Lutheran Church, helps fill the tables of families in Brown and Keya Paha counties during the holiday season and throughout the year thanks to donations and countless volunteer hours. Pastor Williams says communities in this area band together to help those who need assistance due to difficult times. We take care of our own people without any financial assistance from the government. All the food at the Ainsworth Ministerial Food Pantry is donated.

Pastor Georg Williams said he only asks two questions when someone comes for items at the food pantry: “Do you live in Brown or Keya Paha County” and “are you in need of food.” Other than the requirement that the person receiving food lives in the service area, Williams said it’s not up to him, or any other person, to decide who deserves to utilize the food pantry.
