Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT We provide produce and shelf stable items free of charge on a weekly basis to anyone in need. There are no questions asked - there is no judgment. We shop "one on one" with each person and use a "Client Choice" format in order to eliminate food waste. This also allows us to make a personal connection with each and every shopper. We make sure that everyone knows that they are cared for at The Little Pantry That Could. While we are primarily a food pantry, we are about more than just filling a bag with food, we are about filling a need - whatever that need may be. We provide referrals to other agencies for specific needs. We coordinate with other local organizations to host Food Stamp Clinics, Housing Clinics, Employment and Healthcare Clinics. We treat each person who enters our doors with dignity and respect. Each shopper is seen as a unique individual who not only receives from us, but also contributes by becoming a part of TLPTC Family.


We are a small food pantry with a big heart!

We provide staples and fresh produce to approximately 200 families a week - people without homes, retired people, single moms and children. Real People With Real Needs. Our goal is to do more than provide food - we strive to make a personal connection with every shopper and let them know that they are cared for.

At The Little Pantry That Could, "I think I can" ( make a difference) is translated into "I thought I could" and "I did". If you want to see the positive effect of your volunteer work, TLPTC is a great place to be.

TLPTC is like no other "pantry". Once you walk in the door, shopper or volunteer, you are FAMILY. I started volunteering several months ago and look forward to Satruday each week. Sometimes I feel like I get more out of volunteering than the shoppers get out of shopping. Come see for yourself.

The Little Pantry That Could not only provides food for our "shoppers", but provides family as well. It's a community that really aims to reach out and help in any way possible.
