Prince of Peace Food Pantry in Davenport has received a $5,000 “Lutheran Community Economic Outreach Bridge Grant” from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation.

The funding was awarded to Prince of Peace Church based on its effectiveness in addressing basic needs of the local community such as food, clothing or shelter.

The food pantry also has elected to participate in a challenge grant program sponsored by the Foundation. For every dollar raised by March 31, the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation will provide an additional 50 cents — up to $5,000.

The pantry has been in operation since 2007. Donations can be made to Prince of Peace Church Food Pantry 415 W. 53rd Street, Davenport, IA 52806.
