One of the Bronx's biggest food pantries may be closing its doors for good. 

The Word of Life Church has been distributing food in the South Bronx for years. It gave out food to Bronx residents on Saturday, but the church's pastor doesn't know if it will ever be able to do so again.

Church leaders say the building owner, the Osborne Association, is pushing out the charitable food donation center. 

The church says the food distributors they've relied on have now stopped donating food to their pantry. 

News 12 The Bronx reached to the Osborne association but was unable to reach a representative.
