ABOUT US

Our Motto: Love until they ask why

The Storehouse is a non-profit, food distribution program for families in the greater Covington area. We partner with local  businesses, churches, civic groups, and schools to ease the burden of those we serve. Currently we serve close to 200 families weekly, and 8 different ministries including drug/rehabilitation programs and community meals.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to serve our neighbors, who are struggling with, or are vulnerable to food insecurity, by providing nourishing food, prayer, and referrals to other services.

Our vision is to improve the quality of life for our neighbors beyond food security.
