During the early formative years adequate nutrition is vital to raising healthy children who can learn and grow. Unfortunately baby food, formula, diapers and wipes can be expensive. And families who are on limited budgets might not be able to provide all the nutrition a growing baby needs. In October 2015, The Pantry started providing families with children 3 and under with these basic necessities. Parents may receive these items once a month when they come in for their regular food order. We will also provide these items separately should the family choose.
