Food Resource Guide
Grant County Hunger Council–Our mission is to alleviate hunger, food insecurity, and the effects of poverty in Grant County through education, coordination, advocacy and service. We have developed a Food Resource Guide listing programs and food pantries in Grant County that help families be more food secure.
