Food Pantry

The Orange City Area Food Pantry is hosted by American Reformed Church and supported by 17 partner churches, as well as numerous individuals and community businesses and organizations. Special distributions are made at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and mid-summer.

To receive groceries
Food Pantry groceries are available to anyone who lives in Alton, Granville, Hospers, Maurice, or Orange City; people who feel they need to use the Pantry a second time are asked to provide a referral from their pastor, deacon, social worker, public health nurse, or DHS agent. To visit the Food Pantry or refer someone for Food Pantry assistance, simply call the church office at 712.737.4430.
