Volunteers passing around food at a Food Pantry event

Food Pantry

We Care Food Pantry assists Morton residents with a food pantry for their community in need. Information and referrals are also provided to direct recipients toward other agencies which may be of additional help. The Food Pantry provides over 45,000 meals and about 900 referrals annually.

This service began in 1983 when funds became available to establish a food distribution program to help those in need in our community. We are fortunate to receive donations for our pantry from local food drives, churches, and citizens in the community wishing to help.
