Food Pantries

FOOD PANTRIES

The Food Security Network was started in 1981 by a group of churches responding to hunger through food distribution. More than thirty years later, our network of food pantries continue to carry on its mission of helping people “move from hunger to wholeness.”

The network of pantries strive to accomplish its mission of acquiring, storing, and distributing nutritious food to the financially deprived people in our area. The affiliated pantries utilize over 150 volunteers in the effort to alleviate hunger.
