EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY
In a "normal" setting the emergency food pantry serves an average of 180 families in crisis per month. Because of government assistance due to COVID, that number has diminished quite a bit but the need of an Emergency Food Pantry is still there and Inner City has been assisting families throughout the Pandemic. They are helped for a few days to bridge through a crisis. Families are limited to two visits for our food pantry services per year. The food pantry is open M-F from 9:15 to 11 a.m.
Emergency clothing services focus on families and individuals in need with special attention to school children. This program also includes shoes for children who have a referral from their teacher or school counselor. Please call Inner City for more information at 210.224.7239.
