Food Pantry Ministry

Highland has been providing a daily food pantry ministry to families in need for over 18 years. Highland is a certified partner with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and as such, we’re able to purchase food and other items for this ministry at significantly discounted rates.

Highland provides gospel resources along with food and personal hygiene items to individuals and families in crisis. There are no requirements or stipulations, the ministry is simply done “in Jesus’ Name.”

In addition to the regular daily ministry, there are special seasonal projects such as our annual Christmas basket ministry which has provided holiday food baskets and Christmas gifts for literally hundreds of children and families for the past 18 years. This is a ministry the whole church gets involved in and receives a great deal of joy from each year.

Highland also extends this ministry to include the homeless population of our community and regularly give socks, gloves, coats, and lunches to homeless people who are either living on the streets or in the shelters. As we meet these folks, we try to talk to them, listen to them, get to know them and pray with anyone who would like prayer. Sometimes our students and music ministry volunteers lead worship and invite anyone who wants to come and worship the Lord and sing praises. This is all completely voluntary–there are no “strings attached,” and everyone really seems to enjoy the interaction and worship together.

This ministry is provided by means of the donations of the members and friends of Highland.

    Dhs says that I make to much for 2 people even though we are struggling to pay our bills and buy food. Can you still help?

    • Loni Sadler says: · ·Reply

      We are able to assist you. Proof of residency and picture id is what you need. So utility bill or lease agreement is fine. The food pantry is opened on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to noon. You are eligible to receive food assistance from us every 60 days. Because we help so many families from all over and have no zip code requirements, we have to have this guideline. We look forward to serving you! Loni

    1. How do you help the homeless if this is unavailable? (picture ID and proof of residency such as a utility bill, lease agreement, DHS statement is required.)?

    2. Food can only be received once every 60 days????

    Just curious about the rules and such.
    Have a blessed day.

      Proof of residency and picture id is what you need. If it is a situation where one is homeless and not staying with anyone, we will assist them. That’s why the church is here. They still need a picture ID. The food pantry is opened on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to noon. You are eligible to receive food assistance from us every 60 days. Because we help so many families from everywhere and have no zip code requirements like many do, we have to have this guideline. We look forward to serving you! Loni
