Feeding Licking County

We are committed to making sure all of our neighbors in Licking County have enough food. We believe that food is a basic human right and no one should have to choose between food and other needs. The Food Pantry Network of Licking County works with 20 volunteer pantries across Licking County to acquire and distribute nutritious food, providing equal and reliable access to all of our community neighborhoods. We provide free weekly produce market distributions in seven different locations and work with other local partners to provide on-site feeding programs*.
The Food Pantry Network of Licking County serves qualifying residents in Licking County at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.
* The days and times listed are as up-to-date to the organization's knowledge. Please check with your local program for weather and holiday schedule changes.

FPN Choice Pantries

This pantry allows for the customers to come in and shop for shelf-stable pantry items on a monthly basis. The customer will be able to select their food items based on their need at home. The pantry will offer smaller portions and items for food selection than a market, and cannot guarantee having fresh produce available.
