We have a desire to assist families in need more than our once a month PB&J deliveries. Our goal is to assemble 4-5 boxes of the following items to have available at any given time to hand out. We are looking for the following items on a regular basis from Church members to stock the pantry in Killeen.

Donations can be dropped off each Sunday and will be stocked in kitchen storage room on shelves. Boxes will be assembled and ready to go each Sunday. Pick up times for PB&J Pantry are Friday and Saturday mornings from 8:30-9:30 at Killeen Campus and Sundays from 12-12:30pm and Tuesdays from 12-2pm at the Temple Campus.
If you need perishable items, we are partnering with Operation Phantom Support for Military Families for additional support of perishable items: 315 E. Ave. C, Killeen. Open Thursdays and Saturdays. $10.00 a month and DD214 or ID is required. Active and Prior service eligible.
After identifying a huge need in our community regarding school children’s nutritional needs on the weekends and praying about how we could make an impact, we launched plans for the PB&J Project. We currently support 40 children from Peebles Elementary School in Killeen with hopes of expanding the project to other schools.
Mission: To provide children, identified by the teachers and school who are in most need of nutritional assistance while away from the school, with healthy, ready to eat food for them to take home on Fridays and last for the whole weekend.
Every 4th Friday of the month, GetFit, in conjunction with Christian Life Church, packs 40 backpacks filled with ready to eat food for children from Peebles Elementary School. In addition, we provide free Thanksgiving meals to our PB&J families as well as an amazing Christmas event in December called The Christmas Blessing.
