Crosslines Food Pantry Reopens

Crosslines Food Pantry Crosslines offers nutritious food options to those experiencing food insecurity.  To best adhere to occupancy and physical distancing guidelines and to best keep everyone safe, the pantry’s interior facility will remain closed to public access.

To receive food assistance, Crosslines guests will need to fill out the Crosslines Online Order Form or call in their order by phone at (417) 869-0563.  Guests will be given a date and time for pickup. Distribution hours will remain the same, 9 am to 1:45 pm during the week. Crosslines will continue to closely monitor health guidelines and volunteer availability to best determine when the client choice shopping model might return.

You can help inspire hope for families by hosting a food drive, volunteering to fill pantry boxes, or making a financial gift to the pantry.  Crosslines anxiously await the ability to fully reopen and welcome guests in as we always have.
