WE NEED YOUR HELP!
When the MCFP first opened in June 2014, we had 9 people come through our door. In 2019 we served approximately 14,550 clients, and our volume has increased steadily each year. Because of this rise in the number of people we service, we have now outgrown our current home. Therefore, we are in search of a new facility to serve as a more permanent home for the pantry and have established a “Building Fund” to work toward this goal. It is our hope that success in this endeavor will help us to expand the scope of our mission to feed those of our neighbors who are in need.
