Client Visit

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

All of us are dealing with COVID-19 and many are making serious sacrifices and dealing with lots of uncertainties. We want to assure you that Action Ministries has every intention of staying open to help provide food for your family during this crisis. Our hours will remain the same – Monday thru Friday, 9-noon, 1st Monday (6:30-8) and 3rd Monday (6-7:30). Our primary service area also remains the same – southern Kenton County. If you are outside that area, please try a food pantry closer to your home. To protect you and to protect ourselves we are limiting personal, physical contact. We are asking you to park and stay in your car. A Greeter will come to you and get your information. After we have put it into our system, we will have groceries brought to your car. Please know that we continue to care deeply about the well-being of our community as we have for over 25 years and we will continue to serve you as long as we have the resources to do it. Please join us in praying that this will be over soon

If you are able to provide this information, we will be able to give you groceries from both our donated and government food programs. ; Without it, we must limit you to the government food program.

Please plan to arrive at our office no later than 11:30 if it is your first visit. ; It will take several minutes to get you set up and into our system and we like to allow our volunteers to go home at noon.

If you live outside our service area or have other needs, please contact us so that may be able to help you. This information changes frequently, so it might be a good idea to call before going to one of the other agencies.
