Charting impact

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

We as a ministry have a lot planned for 2015, and our efforts are laser-focused on ending hunger in Macon County. With the continued support of our beloved community, our food programs, such as the BackPack Program and Food Pantry, will continue to provide community members with vital nourishment in times of need.

In 2015, our ministry is focused on partnering with families in times of need, rather than just providing resources in a short-term solution to end hunger. Through the development of a client choice model food pantry and continuing to provide educational workshops and certification trainings for the families we serve.

Partnering with local businesses, civic groups, churches, and our affiliate in the Feeding America Network, MANNA Foodbank, we are able to network and leverage our resources to provide a complete approach to providing resources and educational tools to the families we serve.

As an organization aimed at providing quality and timely resources, we believe we are just scratching the surface of our potential as a leader in our community. Macon County Care Network continues to strive for consistency, advocacy for those we serve, as well as, strengthening the very programs we have lead the way with in terms of providing food security for families in Macon County.
