Pantry leadership thanks the Town of Milton and the community at large for their support. The Matt Haley Trust, Freeman Foundation, Draper Foundation, Perdue Foundation and many other businesses, groups and individuals have been generous in supporting the pantry during this difficult year. Without their help, the pantry could have not continued its important work.
For more than six years, the Milton Community Food Pantry has been committed to helping people get supplemental food. As communities experience more food insecurity, it is recognized as one of the leading independent nonprofits addressing food insecurity in the area. It currently serves between 50 and 80 families at each distribution and has provided more than 450,000 meals. The pantry is dedicated to innovations in how to best distribute food and support the community in changing times.
