ALLEGAN COUNTY FOOD PANTRY COLLABORATIVE
ACFPC Brochure Available Here
The recent poll conducted by the ACFPC brought to light the misconceptions that surround hunger concerns in Allegan County. Highlights of the poll: the majority of those polled are aware of only one pantry in Allegan County --- when there are actually more than 25; the average estimate for how many people county-wide receive food from a pantry each month was 3,000 ---- the actual number exceeds 11,600; many thought the government provided food or financial resources to local pantries --- none of the seventeen pantry members of the ACFPC receive food or money from federal or state resources. These findings are important as the ACFPC steps up efforts to include corporations, small businesses and individuals in our campaign to increase the food resources available for our pantries. Until we can increase the available food and monetary resources, our seventeen member pantries will continue to spend upwards of $250,000 per year on food and supplies to supplement the donations they receive.
