Life Community Services

Life Community Services, in partnership with the Durham Parks and Recreation Department, launches the Mercy House Food Pantry.   

The Food Pantry is located at the Holton Career and Resource Center and is open on the first and third Fridays monthly from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.


The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is a critical resource to more than 800 emergency food and social service programs in 34 counties of central and eastern North Carolina.  A Food Pantry is a community-based program that collects and stores food to distribute free of charge to low–income families and individuals.  The Mercy House Food Pantry introduced by Life Community Services- a division of Life International’s Outreach Ministry, will provide temporary food assistance to those in need once a week or twice a month.

The Food Bank’s partner agencies have access to fresh produce, canned meals, baby food, frozen products, beverages, and essential non-food items such as personal hygiene items and paper products.  A barrel is located in the rear of the Church for those who want to donate non-perishable food items.  Monetary gifts are also welcome for discounted food purchases from the North Carolina Food Bank.

As a partner of the Food Bank, Life International invites you to help meet the needs of the community and become part of the hunger solution.


Opening the Food Pantry, a part of Dr. Fletcher's vision, is to assist with the growing need for emergency food in the community. The Food Pantry is open to LI members as well.
