The food pantry operation consists of several various facets. It provides food for our homeless shelter residents. It also provides emergency food support (up to once every 30 days) for the needy in the community. In addition to volunteers that operate the food pantry, there are volunteers who run daily food securement “routes” rescuing edible food from being thrown away. Finally, due to the walk-in freezer and refrigerator storage capacity, the food pantry also serves as a distribution center for ten smaller food pantries in the Hamilton County area.
The food pantry’s current operating hours are 1 – 5 pm each Tuesday-Saturday.
