A food pantry is a distribution center where hungry families can receive food. Supplied with food from a food bank, pantries feed hundreds of people per week. Because every community is different, there are many different types of pantries (Feeding America, 2022).
The Catawba County Food Council has partnered with Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry (CCM) and Eastern Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministry (ECCCM) for cooking videos, recipes, accessing culturally appropriate resources, and continues to work directly with both food pantries to provide education on topics they have identified.
