Our HOME Pantry

The mission of the pantry is not only to provide food, but to offer other needed resources, opportunities and empowerment. The pantry falls under the City of Garden City’s Community Resource Department, which offers pantry clients no-cost state benefits application assistance and/or other assistance programs. The pantry is also under the Family Resource Center, which offers youth and family programs such as Strengthening Families along with many other programs. The pantry is by appointment only, and is client choice. Each person is allowed 10 pounds of food per family member up to 50 pounds per household.
