Our Christmas in July Food Drive is going strong and continues through August 15. Keep that holiday spirit going and stop by a participating business to donate! Help us fill our Pantry!

The Stewpot Pantry is open five days a week to individuals and families who qualify based on their level of income and who are unable to afford food, or to consistently feed their families. Volunteers from supporting faith communities staff the Pantry to distribute items after Stewpot personnel screen applicants to insure eligibility.

For more information about Christmas in July or our Pantry, please contact Stephanie Echols at (601) 353-2759.
