Monthly Report

The Food Pantry is dedicated to serving Batesville citizens who, for a variety of reasons, have come upon hard times and do not have an income that is adequate to provide food for themselves and their family members. Our volunteers provide a welcoming setting in which our clients can be assured that they will be provided with good, nourishing food and basic toiletry items. Clients are free to visit on a monthly basis on Wednesday from 12:00 to 4:00 pm.

The Batesville Area Ministerial Association is a fellowship of churches seeking to serve the entire Batesville community, regardless of denomination. The Association combines efforts to staff the food pantry with volunteers from each participating church. It also provides emergency funds for local needs.

Our goal is to alleviate hunger. We are aware that each and every one of us is only one pink slip or medical catastrophe away from being in the shoes that walk through our doors every week. We are grateful that the pantry is so well supported by the town of Batesville. Won't you help too? All donations are tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations. Batesville Area Ministerial Association Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 


The Batesville Area Ministerial Association Food Pantry would like to thank the Ripley County Community Foundation for the grant of $1,000 that was recently awarded.  With the funds provided we were able to purchase a great deal of much needed food including pasta, canned vegetables, peanut butter and much more. 

We can’t say enough times how much the RCCF does for the community.  We are so grateful to them for allowing us to feed the hungry and provide not just food but personal care items as well.  The Ripley County Community Foundation helps us to do what needs to be done.  We value their assistance so much, as do our clients.  Thanks to them so many disadvantaged citizens and their children will not go to bed hungry.
