Picture of people in food pantry



The PACS Food Pantry provides healthy choices, including fresh produce and perishable foods, for low-income families seeking food assistance. In 2015 the pantry provided a 3-5 day supply of emergency food to 78,816 people. At PACS you get to choose your own food so you can get the items you know you can use. This also prevents wasted food by saving PACS from giving people items they cannot use.

The PACS COW Mobile Pantry (COW stands for Commodities on Wheels) brings food to underserved neighborhoods by partnering with churches and other organizations in key areas.
