The Mid-North Food Pantry’s (MNFP’s) mission is to enhance the health of our mid-north neighborhoods by providing supplemental food and basic necessities for our neighbors in need.

Great client selection thanks to donors and partners

Thanks to our donors and partners, the Mid-North Food Pantry recently had an awesome selection of food to distribute.  Along with our standard choices of non-perishable staple foods, our clients took home frozen meats, dairy products, 5-pound bags of flour, refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough, salad dressing, and LOTS of fresh lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, and even some asparagus!
