Charting impact

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

Our mission is to assist Jackson County residents in crisis, helping them to move toward relative independence. Our goal is to eliminate food insecurity in our county.

Our goal is to eliminate hunger in our county. Our food pantry offers fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, grains, and other healthy foods. We are increasing our collaboration with local farmers to create a sustainable pipeline of fresh, nutritious food for our clients. We are also increasing our mobile pantry events to bring food to areas of need.

We have added staff and pantry capacity in order to meet our goals. We received grants to build an addition to our pantry, adding 400 square feet, and to purchase a van to use for food transportation and mobile pantries. We receive donations from Feeding America/MANNA Food Bank partners Food Lion and Walmart.

After our pantry expansion we were able to increase our food donations from WalMart, and added Starbucks and Dollar General as a new donor. The van has allowed us to reach out to the local LatinX farmworker population and parents of school age children. We hired a third permanent staff member to assist our Directors and to help manage our database.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
