2016 Pantry Brochure

Over 40,000 people each month rely on food pantries in the Capital Region. The FOCUS Interfaith Food Pantry provides families from the Capital Hill, Center Square, Hudson, Washington and Park South neighborhoods, and beyond, with a 6-day supply of food.

Families may visit the pantry once each month. In addition to a balanced and nutritious food package, the pantry provides personal care items, fresh fruit, vegetables, and milk vouchers. The Interfaith Food Pantry also helps households by supplying information about additional community resources such as job training, housing, healthcare, food stamps, WIC and nutrition education. Guests are also provided with advocacy and referral services.
