The Food Pantry is a mini-gorcery store that provides a four-day supply of food for carefully screened applicants. Volunteers from local congregations staff the pantry from 9 to 11 a.m., Monday through Friday. They sort, stack, and bag groceries for each family who comes to Stewpot for assistance. The pantry is stocked through generous donations from individual and business supporters and from our partnership with the Mississippi Food Network. Some food items, however, such as sugar, canned fruit, cereal, and peanut butter, are in constant demand and must occasionally be purchased by Stewpot. During the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, the Food Pantry also prepares special baskets with turkeys, hams, and other holiday food items.
1,000 individuals benefit from Stewpot's Food Pantry each month.
