THE GENEVA CENTER OF CONCERN FOOD PANTRY
The Food Pantry remains open during normal hours (Monday-Friday, 10AM-1PM), and has ramped up efforts to provide emergency food to Geneva neighbors in need. Our usual pantry service has changed somewhat, to allow for minimal personal contact. Our dedicated volunteers are on location, to bag food prior to client arrival. For more information about Center operations during the Pandemic, please check out messages under the Current News tab of this website.
The Geneva Center of Concern operates a Food Pantry which is vital to the well-being of needy individuals in the Geneva community. The Pantry is a primary source of food for needy families and single individuals of all age groups. In 2019 the Pantry distributed food on a scheduled regular basis to 3,126 families representing 8,765 individuals i.e. enough food for 78,885 meals.
The Pantry has been able to assist those in need because of the generosity of countless individuals, churches, agencies and companies who contribute gifts, food, donations and volunteer hours throughout the years. When contributing to The Center, you can be assured that your donations are going directly to those in need and are making a difference in the Geneva community.
