“Our area is populated by approximately 2500 people and during 2017 we served approximately 1/3 of our area population. Our clients include seniors, veterans, families and individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Supplemental food is available to clients once a month with additional boxes provided at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Volunteers are the heart of the Food Pantry-we could not function without them. From cleaning and bagging produce to unloading trucks and stocking shelves our volunteers work hard to keep our doors open each week. In 2017 community members donated over 4,000 hours. That's a lot of commitment!” Upper Susitna Food Pantry
