CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“On Saturday night, I would often go to work thinking about my kids, knowing exactly how many tips I needed to pay our rent for the month. When I learned about IPM, I was worried about what people would think, but my family was in need, so I walked through the pantry doors. The volunteers were so welcoming, and I was relieved that I could count on the pantry for the food my family needed."

Our History

Since our founding in 1964 by four local churches, IPM Food Pantry has focused on feeding families in need to create a thriving community. IPM has expanded its reach, through collaboration, from a single pantry into more than 30 zip codes spanning four counties. The 2020 pandemic caused us to shift — as need increased and indoor access ceased — to Drive-Through and Mobile pantries. In 2022 IPM provided nearly 40 mobile food pantries, and almost 65 percent of our clients are served in their communities with Mobiles, Pop-Ups and through our Food Resource Hub.
