The pantry was first organized in February 1977 and in October 2017 moved to their new location on Bidwell Ave.  The Volunteer staff purchase food, picks up and sorts donated food, stocks shelves and distributes the food each week Monday through Friday 12:00PM till 2:30PM. In the past year the pantry handled 2,800 referral forms which provided 9,000 family members with 190,000 meals.

We are very grateful to the Food Pantry and Staff for all their dedicated Volunteer hours giving back to our Community.
