Food Assistance

Friends of the Poor (FOTP) operates fourteen food pantries (two full-time permanent, and twelve part-time satellites). Annually, these pantries serve over 15,500 individuals unduplicated, and more than 88,800 individuals duplicated. In addition, the agency’s Family to Family program holds three large-scale food distributions around major holidays, including 2,850 households at Thanksgiving, 2,400 households at Christmas, and 2,500 households at Easter.
