Patchwork’s food pantry is open Monday – Thursday, 9:30 am – 11:45 am. Closed on Holidays.
The Patchwork Central Emergency Food Pantry has been feeding hungry families in our neighborhood since 1982. Clients are eligible to obtain food from the pantry every 30 days by obtaining a referral from one of several referral agencies in the city. Each food order contains enough nutritionally balanced food to feed a family for 3-4 days. Last year, our food pantry served 1885 individuals from 904 households by distributing almost 19.5 tons of food.
Patchwork’s food pantry is one of six pantries in the Evansville Emergency Food Pantry Consortium. Additional information about the Consortium can be found on its website www.eefpc.org.
