The CAM Story

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 two mobile outreaches, more than 41,000 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.

“…and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” Isaiah 58:10
