Our Food Pantry Program served 8,619 households in Campbell County in the year 2015. We also provided 300 Thanksgiving meals to families that otherwise would not have had one. Our Annual Christmas Basket Event provided 644 families with a holiday meal in 2015 with the help of many community volunteers.
Qualified individuals and families can receive non-perishable and frozen food items from the food pantry once a month. Our Food Pantry program runs through the use of community food and financial donations. We strive to provide individuals and families with fresh produce and dairy items alongside longer lasting items such as canned goods to ensure nutritious meals.
This program also works with food pantry clients to give referrals for food stamps, employment services or other organizations to help them meet their needs. Our mission is to help our clients find long term solutions to the problems that are causing food insecurity.
We work through Feed America and our local grocery stores to provide our clients with fresh, healthy produce, dairy, and meat products alongside their non-perishable items.
