What is a food pantry ?
Many communities have a local "food pantry", sometimes mistakenly called a "food bank". Most of these community food pantries are sponsored by local area churches and/or community coalitions.
A community food pantry’s mission is to directly serve local residents who suffer from hunger and food insecurity within a specified area.
Independent community food pantries are self-governing and usually distribute food to their clients on a once-a-month basis.
A food bank is the storehouse for millions of pounds of food and other products that go out to the community. A food pantry functions as the arms that reach out to that community directly.
