Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the Golden Corner Food Pantry is to help clients transition through difficult times or, if chronically poor to provide basic healthy food needs.

The volunteers at the Golden Corner Food Pantry treat clients with dignity and respect and try to understand their situation. We work to provide food commensurate with their needs and our ability, and also to provide guidance to help clients break the cycle of poverty.

The Golden Corner Food Pantry has over 270 dedicated volunteers, works closely with local government and non profit agencies and churches, and is part of the Golden Harvest Food Bank network.

The Golden Corner Food Pantry continues to pursue Make Life Better efforts with expanded interviews for clients who ask for help beyond food. We also have implemented an "Improved Nutrition" program which provides whole grain cereal, fresh milk, added dairy products and low sodium canned products for clients.
