CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - After 27 years, the Red Star Food Pantry has received 501c(3) status.

501c(3) status allows the pantry to be eligible for state, federal, and other income tax exemptions, and those that contribute to the pantry can get deductions on their taxes.

The pantry is run by two churches, The Red Star Baptist Church and, in recent years, the Church of the Rescued and Redeemed.
