Fairfield Food Pantry
The Fairfield Food Pantry’s mission is to provide a balanced and nutritious emergency food supply to those with special needs in a loving, caring and supportive manner. The Pantry opened its doors in 1976, due to a growing need in the community to assist local families with emergency food and supplies. They currently serve over 5,500 individuals in our local community each year. Food is donated by individuals, churches, schools, community organizations, scouts, youth, and local clubs. Donated food is combined with other food products to complete nutritious meals for our local children, adults and senior citizens. Our own Julie Abner has been on the Board of Trustees for more than four years, actively participating in local drives to help feed those community members in need.
