Food Pantry

This is how much the Food Pantry Network can purchase with $10…

If you spent $10, you could purchase only this much…

The Network has purchasing power like no other! They receive food from the Mid-Ohio Foodbank for 4 cents a pound. So, for 1 dollar, they are able to acquire 25 pounds of food. To put that into perspective. Most boxes of cereal weigh 16 oz. So they can buy 25 boxes of cereal for $1. Or over 25 cans of veggies or fruits for $1.

The Food Pantry Network of Licking County strives daily to accomplish the mission of acquiring, storing, and distributing nutritious food to the financially deprived and otherwise needy in Licking County. The work of the Food Pantry Network is accomplished on a daily basis through the operation of food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, youth camps and after-school programs. The affiliated pantries utilize over 300 volunteers in fighting the war against hunger.
