Celebrating 50 Years of Feeding Our Neighbors
FISH Food Pantry ~ 1973 - 2023
Happy Holidays from FISH!
Oh what a year it has been! Our wonderful new addition that was completed in September of 2023 came just in the nick of time to help our neighbors in need. It has been a humbling experience to witness the outpouring of kindness we have received this past year. We are forever grateful to all who have helped us achieve this goal that allows us to serve record numbers so much more efficiently!
