Crosslines Food Pantry Temporary Changes to Service

Out of an abundance of caution and to assist with our nation’s preventative efforts, the Council of Churches of the Ozarks has modified the Crosslines distribution process for the food pantry. The pantry has closed its interior facility to public access out of concern about the COVID-19 and possible volunteer shortages.

• Distribution hours will remain the same, 9 am to 1:45 pm.

• We ask that you select this link to order food online. You can also call Crosslines at 417-869-0563  during normal business hours to place an order, but with a limited number of phone lines, it may take some time to get to an operator.

• Orders must be placed ahead of time for a scheduled pickup or guests can wait in the parking lot and will receive a call when the order is ready to be picked up at the drive-thru.

It is important that we prepare appropriately for different scenarios and be ready to modify procedures as needed. Our priorities are to make sure volunteers, staff, and guests remain safe while continuing to provide a reliable food source to those in need in our community.
