Things We Do
With a focus on removing barriers to food access, IPM continues to serve more and more community members. In 2023, IPM provided 38 mobile food pantries, a program that provides food for thousands of IPM neighbors. Partnering with more than 50 community organizations, IPM provides over one million pounds of food each year to families in need.

We are helping families who are starting over from adverse situations get a Fresh Start by providing a full set of kitchen essentials to help them prepare home cooked meals together.
Food Resource Hub
We provide a consistent supply of food for schools, churches, affordable housing complexes and social service agencies who then redistribute food to families in need.
Back to School
We give out hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to kids entering Preschool through High School at our local school districts.
Power Pack Program
Our Power Packs ensure students won't go hungry over the weekend when they are not receiving daily school lunches.
Our Backpack of basics are designed to provide items that meet the immediate needs of unsheltered individuals. Law Enforcement and other agencies help with distribution.
We host two stores, a "Santa's Toy Store" for caregivers shopping for children and a "Gifts for Grown-Ups Store" that gives adults the chance to shop for a special gift for themselves or a loved one.
