Mission Statement

"Feeding the World Starts With Feeding Just One."

Description

Doris Pantry Inc. was founded by Charles Simmons, the oldest grandson of Doris Wilson. Mrs. Wilson was a woman of modest upbringing with strong roots in the church. She loved her community and all those in it. Mr. Simmons grew up watching his grandmother open her home, her heart, and her dining table to many people in the community. She never cared what you looked like, who your friends were, or why you did or didn’t have. All Mrs. Wilson knew was that if someone was hungry, she should feed them.

After many years of following his grandmother’s lead by feeding people all over the community of Indianapolis, Indiana, Mr. Simmons has decided to take the lessons of his grandmother and make them work on a larger scale. Through his own personal experiences, trials, and tribulations he came to the realization that there are many gaps in the system that government aid is not able to fill.

The mission of Doris Pantry Inc. is very simple; to feed those who cannot otherwise feed themselves. To do this without prejudice, blame, persecution, or risking the loss of their dignity. Doris Pantry Inc., can and will continue Mrs. Wilson’s legacy of "Feeding the World, Starting with Feeding Just One".
