WHO WE ARE
The Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County is a partnership across churches in the community operated entirely by volunteers. More than 200 volunteers work at the Pantry each year distributing food, assisting clients, stocking, receiving food donations, and unloading trucks.
The Pantry provides people with food at no cost to them, serving Johnson County residents who meet income guidelines of 185% of the poverty level or below. Clients may visit the Pantry twice per month, and each family member receives food for approximately four days. Other resources and referrals are provided to clients when possible. These requirements are being waived during the Pandemic.
The Pantry exists through the support of more than 45 churches and church affiliates, approximately 75 businesses, service organizations, and local foundations as well as more than 200 individuals and families.
The Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County is a registered 501(c)3.
The Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County started in the basement closet of the First Baptist Church on Jefferson Street in Franklin, Indiana in
In its early years, the Pantry served 128 families (300 individuals) per year. Today, we serve up to 100 families per day, six days a week.
The Pantry has grown through the years to keep pace with the needs of the community. In 2014, the Pantry was selected by Gleaners to be their Johnson County “Pantry Partner” resulting in more food, including fresh produce. Obtaining a box truck and moving to a new location in 2015 have allowed the Pantry to receive more food donations and to distribute food through a pleasant, efficient “shopping” approach.
