A “Hand Up” ministry serving Faith families, Eureka, and House Springs.

Hard times can fall upon anyone, and when they do Faith Community Church and The Marketplace can help lessen the burden of putting food on the table through monthly food distributions to qualifying individuals and families.

Who We Are

The Marketplace is the food pantry for Faith Community Church, currently serving our church families, House Springs (63051), and Eureka (63025).   Dedicated to reaching our community as a “Hand Up”, not a “Hand Out”, we currently distribute a variety of food, including eggs, fresh produce, milk, and meat.  Though food distribution is our main service, we are able to offer other resources to our clients free of charge.

Our Mission

At the Marketplace, we are reaching out as a “whole person” ministry, seeking to connect our client’s to God’s immeasurable love through His provision for both their current and eternal needs and compassionate fellowship.  We serve a powerful God who is “able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask” (Eph 3:20), and desire to spread hope and blessing where there is discouragement and shame.

Distribution Schedule

We will hold Distributions on the third Saturday of each month.

Please check this webpage to verify if there are any changes prior to the distribution.

4:30pm to 6:30pm. *
New applications will be taken at that time.

First time clients will need to bring a photo ID and proof of residency, as well as fill out an application.

*Dates and times are subject to change and will be updated here as needed.  Please check before coming in.
