Mission Statement

Front and Center is a place where people give and receive generous portions of kindness and grace to feed their spiritual and emotional needs as well as receive food for their physical hunger.


At the corner of Front and Center stands an American Icon. Restored and placed next to the tracks, a gentle and subtle reminder to days gone by. Here in Eyota, it stands as a reminder of a beacon of hope!

Recall that the caboose was the last car of the train, where the conductor and brakemen rode. The brakeman was responsible for making sure the brakes worked properly, for applying the brakes on each car, making sure couplings were secure, and watching for problems throughout the train, such as a load shifting, or track problems. But, for those bygone years, the caboose on the train was a symbol of joy, excitement and fun! Here it comes! There it goes! Hope!

Our story at Front and Center is to give people that same concept of hope. We have big plans for the future of our community one car, one train and one caboose at a time. The mission of Front and Center, Inc., a dream realized at the Caboose, will continue to bear fruit within our community!

With that, we are excited to share Eyota Food Pantry, begun in 2017 by a group of entrepreneurial Girl Scouts within the community, will expand services and provide continued hope to those facing food insecurity.

Thrift on Front generates funding for the programs we offer and Center Grounds is a gathering space for the community.

The good is here...the better is coming and the best is on the way! I see it! I see it! The Caboose!
