It is our desire to be able to continue to offer a “hand up” to our neighbors in need of some additional nutritious food. Mondays from 10 AM-12 PM, we will have a drive through food pantry in the Mustard Seed parking lot at Light on the Hill at Mount Wesley. People will stay in their car, and we will put two bags of healthy food and some delicious meals-to-go in the trunk of their car. If you or someone you know could use this “hand up” please come drive through on Monday. 


We have focused our local outreach efforts on food relief. What a blessing and an honor to be able to share a tangible expression of Christ’s love with our neighbors! 

Mustard Seed Ministries has hosted 7 drive-thru mobile pantries, hosted 1 mega distribution for the SAFB, and made 148 home deliveries to people without transportation. 

All-together, as of April 28, 2020, we have helped 4,246 people1,455 families, and made 227 home deliveries

We have shared 87,552 pounds of food with our neighbors in need.

We have received so much support from our church family, our community, and the San Antonio Food Bank. Together, we can make a difference!

(Thank you for the plastic bags! But, believe it or not, we are out! Please bring your HEB and Walmart plastic bags to Light on the Hill. We have two locations on campus for drop-off of double bags… in front of Welcome Center/office door or in front of single glass door entrance to Mustard Seed.)

KERRVILLE, Texas — Unemployment has not discriminated due to population size.

Northwest of San Antonio, in Kerr County, more families are looking for resources to meet their needs.

A food pantry in Kerrville is hoping to help hundreds of families in need.

“It’s people helping people, neighbors helping neighbors,” said Beth Palmer, the Outreach Coordinator for Kerville United Methodist Church and Light on the Hill.

The ministry hosted their first mass food distribution Monday. Volunteers from several Kerrville churches and groups lent a hand.

“We don’t want anyone to be hungry in this time,” said Palmer.

Usually, the group provides 12,000 pounds of food per month to the community, but they received almost 64,000 pounds of food from the San Antonio Food Bank to feed even more families.

“We are still serving those neighbors, but we’re also serving a lot of younger folks and families who all of a sudden their jobs are, you know, they aren’t able to work right now,” Beth Palmer of Light on the Hill said.

Palmer expected the distribution to feed around 600 families.

“We are so grateful that we are able to do this,” said Palmer.

There is a Food Relief Hotline set up for families in Kerr County. Callers will learn dates and times of future food distributions and can even schedule a delivery if they don’t have transportation.

To reach the Kerr County Food Relief Hotline, call (830) 258-1234.

Together we can keep everyone healthy and fed
