Locating a nearby food pantry has never been easier for St. Joseph County residents.
The St. Joseph County Food Access Council teamed up with local non-profit enFocus to develop an interactive Food Pantry Map of 40+ organizations serving residents in need.
Prior to the pandemic, more than 13% of St. Joseph County residents were faced with food insecurity. Demand has since increased in the wake of COVID-19.
The Food Pantry Map provides the locations, days of week and hours of operation for more than 40 local food pantries. It also provides details on eligibility for services from participating organizations.
The St. Joseph County Health Department and community organizations will also be distributing pocket-sized printed versions to reach at-risk populations without digital access.
