The organization ministers to food insecurity needs in Jackson County by hosting a food pantry and offering financial assistance. In 2015, they distributed 10,500 bags of food, in 2019 around 13,000, but in 2020 that number jumped to 20,000. The pantry provides shelf-stable food such as pasta, oatmeal and baby food.
