Food and Hope


 Clients are assigned one Tuesday/month, 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th for pickup.  Clients must bring their blue Pantry card to the Pantry to receive food.  New clients who are not registered will receive food, but need to bring proof of residency and complete an application on arrival.

Who Are We?

 The Branch Area Food Pantry, an all volunteer organization,  serves approximately 115 families every Tuesday, about 475 families each month. We rely on and value the support of our generous community

2021 presented a huge challenge to the Pantry. Between generous community members, financial donations,  In-kind donations of literally tons of food distributed by an amazing group of volunteers, we met the needs of the community and have been able to revise our procedures to meet the challenges of 2022.

THANK YOU!  The Pantry is truly blessed.


We truly appreciate the generosity and support of our community!

The Pantry would not be able to provide the quantity or quality of food that we share with our families without the tremendous generosity of our IN-KIND (food) donations.  Last year’s food donations totaled over 1000 TONS of food, which were shared with our families. A special shoutout goes to-Aldi’s, Aunt Millies Bakery, Big Lots, Clemens Food Group, Continental Express Trucking, Demerit Bros. Trucking, Lakeland Correctional Facility, Miller Poultry, Was-mart Distribution #6043, United Methodist Gleaners, Maroa Farms (Mastronardi Greenhouse).
Regardless of the size of the donation, we appreciate the generosity of all, as we share the foods with our clients. 

We are grateful to so many donors....

The kindness of the community keeps the Pantry alive.  With dozens of local businesses, churches, financial institutions and hundreds of generous citizens,  there is no way to provide individual acknowledgement for each donation.  Know that we appreciate your contribution and promise to use it to continue with our mission of providing food and hope to our community.
