Prineville church extends food distribution hours


NeighborImpact and First Baptist Church are stepping in to fill a food service gap in Prineville.

Prineville’s St. Vincent de Paul food pantry will no longer distribute food. According to St. Vincent de Paul President Jim Rodosevich, the organization distributed food to 9,600 people in 2017.

After recognizing this clear need for food distribution services, First Baptist Church in Prineville has partnered with NeighborImpact to offer additional food distribution dates and extended service hours.

Starting September 6 through the end of the year, the church will distribute food every Thursday from 12:00-2:30 PM, more than tripling their service hours. To make this distribution possible, participants are asked to bring their own bags or boxes to transport the food to their homes.

Prineville’s St. Vincent de Paul will continue to aid in food recovery from local grocery stores and will deliver the food to First Baptist for distribution, in addition to regular food deliveries made by NeighborImpact.

The additional distribution provided by First Baptist Church will discontinue on December 31, 2018. To provide a more permanent solution, NeighborImpact is seeking additional non-profits to distribute food in Crook County. Any interested non-profits should contact Carly at

Community members interested in utilizing First Baptist’s food services can reach the church at 541-447-7717 with any questions.
