  • The Mobile Food Pantry provided by The Lighthouse Mission and The Food Bank of Central & Northeast Missouri on Dec. 23 was a success and served 359 families, including 445 children age 18 and under with a total of 18,969 pounds of food in four hours.
    More than 90 volunteers from the community and local churches helped with distribution. To add a special blessing this Christmas Season, the body from The Church at Osage Hills partnered up and distributed more than 400 Christmas gift shoe boxes that were filled by the members of the church body and passed out with the food boxes.
    The next mobile food pantry distribution is scheduled for Jan. 10, 2014 from 1 to 5 p.m. For information call the Lighthouse Mission at 573-286-1835.
