The VISTA with Our Neighbors Farm and Pantry (ONFP) will develop and implement the programs to promote ONFP, increase financial support, help provide current employees with vital skills, and refine the volunteer program. The resulting efforts will be a food pantry with a solid sustainability plan for the future.
