In 2017 the Delta Food Pantry served an average of 460 people each month. The pantry is for everyone in our community who needs an extra boost -- no income guidelines or special criteria. It is open behind St. Michael's Catholic Church Monday through Friday 10:30 to 11:30. It is operated by big hearted volunteers. Individual donations, local businesses and these community contributions are the sole support of the organization.

With ever-increasing numbers of people served, it is this generosity that keeps us helping one another. A special thanks to everyone for their kindness and spirit of community!
