About Christian Action Ministries:

In 1984, Branson area churches and community leaders formed Christian Action Ministries, also known as CAM, to serve as the local food outreach and pantry.  Since that time, CAM’s ministry has continued to tackle the issue of food insecurity in Taney County.

Between its Branson Pantry, Forsyth Pantry, and and two mobile outreaches, more than 45,000 people experiencing temporary crisis received the gift of four days’ worth of food last year.

Our Mission:

To provide caring assistance, in Christ’s name, to people experiencing temporary crisis.

Our Vision:

To help people obtain the basic resource of food; to encourage self-sufficiency and independence; and bring together the caring communities—religious, business, and individuals—for meeting these needs.

Financial Contributions:

CAM relies on the generosity of others to fulfill its mission of helping struggling Taney Country residents with the gift of food. Through its purchasing power, CAM can purchase bulk food for pennies on the dollar.  We are able to buy $10 worth of food for only $1, making your financial contribution go a long way.  Will you prayerfully consider getting involved in the CAM ministry?
