THE GENEVA CENTER OF CONCERN FOOD PANTRY
The Food Pantry is open Monday-Friday, 10AM-1PM and we are continuing to operate in “safe mode” to provide emergency food to Geneva neighbors in need. Our usual pantry service has changed somewhat, to allow for minimal personal contact. Dedicated volunteers are on location, to bag food prior to client arrival. During the warm months food is handed to clients at the large overhead door at the back of the Center building. 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 2020 the Pantry distributed food on a scheduled regular basis to 4,051 families representing 10,968 individuals. This represented a 25% increase over 2019.
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.
