About Us

The Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County is a partnership across churches, businesses and organizations in the community operated entirely by volunteers. Over 200 volunteers worked at the Pantry in 2016 distributing food, completing intakes, stocking, unloading trucks, working in the warehouse and cleaning.

The Pantry has MOVED
