A.  Center Mission
To secure and distribute a regular source of donated and purchased food to the needy residents of the Nettleton School District of Monroe, & Lee Counties; the Shannon School District; the Verona School District; and the Plantersville School District with emphasis on families with children, families in crisis, and the elderly under the USDA guidelines.  As Christ is our example of feeding the multitudes, so we would share in this ministry of doing away with hunger in our community.  The Nettleton Food Pantry is an organization responding to the gospel imperative: 'In so far as you did it to one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did it ot Me' (Matthew 25:40).
