Columbus/Fall River Food Pantry

Our mission is to provide emergency food and essential non-food items on a temporary basis to those in need, regardless of circumstances.  We are comprised completely of volunteers from local churches and communities, and we are housed in the back of the Columbus Senior Center, located at 125 N Dickason Blvd, Columbus.  We receive donations of cash, food, and non-food items from individuals and businesses in the area. 100% of the donations go towards assisting people in our local communities.

The Food Pantry is currently helping 196 families in the Columbus and Fall River School Districts. 

Each month, a location serves Thursdays from 4:00 pm to 6:45 pm, by appointment. Call the phone number to make an appointment or other arrangements. For those in need of food during the month of November, please contact Olivet Congregational UCC at 920-623-5140 to schedule an appointment. 

The 2023 Food Pantry Rotation list is available for download.
