The WMC Food Pantry is a vital part of the financial assistance program at the Mission C.A.R.E. Center. Families who come into our Mission C.A.R.E. Center meet with our C.A.R.E. staff, and a needs assessment is made. Food needs are usually a part of that assessment, and the food pantry provides non-perishable bags to these clients. Volunteers prepare these food bags daily, in order for the staff to distribute to clients in need. In 2010, the Food Pantry gave out over 2,163 bags of groceries to hungry individuals and families.
