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.

Hours Changes

The Mid-North Food Pantry will be closed on Fridays in June. We encourage our clients to call 2-1-1 for other pantry locations or to visit the Gleaners CARE mobile pantry in the North United Methodist church lot at 3808 N. Meridian Street on Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon.

Message from the MNFP President

Today, the MNFP is reaching and surpassing its goals. The MNFP has been on a positive trajectory for the past 3 years. The budget has been gaining positively since 2015 due to increased donations, more engaged volunteers and pantry partners, a faithful, hardworking board, and new synergy between our values and mission, and our work.

We are looking to the future to build upon the solid ground on which the Mid-North Food Pantry was founded. This year, the Board added 4 new members: Hope Hampton, Mary Neu-Stoppleman, Laura Taylor, and Loretta Wasmuth. These new members bring fresh and new energy, hearts, and hands to do the work of our Pantry. Each new board member will be highlighted in the quarterly newsletter.

Thank you to all of our volunteers, contributors, board members, and partners.


The MNFP is in need of more volunteers. No special experience is necessary, just your desire to help make a meaningful difference. This is a great opportunity for college and high school students or any adult to join our small and mighty bunch to make an even bigger impact!
