The Food Pantry Network of Licking County has been fighting hunger for 40 years. With a mission to “assure that no one in Licking County goes hungry” the network works to acquire and distribute emergency food supplies to neighbors in need of food assistance.
FPN of Licking County has continued to grow and currently has over 20 partner food pantries throughout Licking County and offers weekly fresh produce markets, a daily community soup kitchen and a baby pantry, ensuring multiple points of access to nutritious food for our neighbors. Additionally, the Food Pantry Network of Licking County partners with local social service organizations to provide on-site feeding programs or food distribution for youth, individuals, families and seniors facing food insecurity.
As a private, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, the largest support for the Food Pantry Network of Licking County comes from the local community support from individuals, community organizations, corporations and foundations. The network is associated with Mid-Ohio Food Collective in Columbus, Ohio.
