Area Ministries for Emergency Needs

820 Reynolds Street
La Grange, Texas 78945

AMEN was founded in 1992, as an ecumenical, non-profit providing food assistance to residents of Fayette County.

AMEN operates solely on contributions and/or donations received from churches, organizations, groups, and individuals. There are currently 13 churches which supply volunteers that staff the pantry on a weekly basis.

Client applications are screened by interviewers to determine the assistance needed. AMEN is a Partner Affiliate with the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. This food bank distributes an average of 15 million pounds of food per year, to more than 370 non-profit agencies in 21 Central Texas Counties.

The children of First Presbyterian Church collect donations

every Sunday to begin our church service.
