The River Valley Regional Food Bank will partner with Messiah Ministries, one of the food bank’s member pantry agencies, on a food giveaway Friday (July 22, 2022) in Paris for residents of the city impacted by the recent storms.

The distribution, to be held at Paris Christian Center at 109 E. Maple St., in Paris, will begin at 9 a.m. Volunteers will distribute food while supplies last. The River Valley Regional Food Bank is donating the product that will be distributed to the public on Friday.

Messiah Ministries Pastor Kellie Kitson said the distribution is open to residents of Paris ONLY. All that’s needed to receive assistance on Friday is a proof of Paris residence.

Kitson said the distribution is intended to aid those impacted by the storms and to help the community in a time of need.

“(The storm) caused a lot of devastation and people have lost food, and been without power for a bit,” she said. “This is to help those people replenish their food stock and to try to end hunger in our city. Towards the end of the month, people start running out and with the power outage, and the heat, it’s just been very devastating. I always say “we’re saved to serve and blessed to be a blessing” and we’re all about helping people and feeding people.”
