Community Services of Starke County Food Pantry currently serves over 250 families a month, a huge jump from serving 150 families in January of 2010. The pantry has matched the government commodities by 240% in 2011 and has been able to operate the food pantry through the generous donation of time and labor from volunteers.
Community Services also provides other services such as public transportation, energy assistance programs, meals for seniors, homemaker services, tax assistance to low-income individuals, and works in partnership with many other agencies to ensure services to the community.
