Food Pantry Mission
Westover Baptist and Rising Liberty churches work together in distributing food to our neighbors, which is provided by individual supporters, the Chesterfield Food Bank Outreach Center, and supplemented with fresh produce from our own Community Garden that is pollinated by the bees from our on-site hives.
The Food Pantry is located under the small porch facing 49th Street, between the Community Garden and the gravel parking lot.
