The mission of the Gardiner Food Pantry is to provide the needy with one emergency box of food per week and to make extra food donations available.
The Gardiner Food Pantry of Park County was part of the Livingston Food Pantry of Park County since January of 2005; because of the support we received we were able to be a self-standing food pantry in 2012. We were located at 205 Main Street, Gardiner for three years. We soon moved to a bigger and better location on 108 3rd Street and are now able to better serve our clients.
We function solely from the help of volunteers; we have no full time staff. Since our opening we have developed numerous programs to help the community we serve. We offer our Emergency Food Box Program, the Backpack Program, our on call Emergency Food Box Program, Lunch 4 U (our senior meal program), and our HOPE Program (Helping Other People Excel). Because of these programs we are able to get closer to our goal of improving food security throughout Park County.
Our goal is to help those in Park County in need of food assistance. Our concern is that some potential clients may be falling through the cracks and may not be receiving the help they need. Adequate nutrition plays an essential role in normal development, especially in the young and elderly. That is why we make coming to the food pantry as easy and pleasant as possible. The Gardiner Food Pantry is available to anyone in need of assistance.
