 Mission Statement:


 “A community pantry that feeds the whole person"

The Storehouse is not the work of one group but a collaboration between many churches, businesses, organizations, and individual partnerships. As a Christian, faith-based pantry, we welcome all faiths, we believe every person we serve is created and loved by God. It is our goal to provide resources for those living with food insecurity in a way that affirms their dignity and worth so that those who are food insecure will come to the Storehouse for their physical need and leave empowered, both physically and spiritually, to live abundantly.

The vision for the Grimes Storehouse was inspired by Malachi 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.  “Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”


As described in this scripture, the Grimes community has rallied to support the pantry and those in need, with their love, labor and gifts.  The long-term vision of the Storehouse is to not only provide food and personal hygiene items, but also to offer additional support systems for holistic healing of those in need.
