The Woodlawn Community Food Pantry was established in 2019. The Woodlawn Community Food Pantry is organized for charitable, food security, nutritional education, and dissemination of information regarding where to find available resources for housing, healthcare, and other human services.
The Woodlawn Community Food Pantry serves as a source of nutritional assistance in the Woodlawn Area to reduce stress in the community regarding the availability of food to families, children, and senior citizens. We focus on distributing healthier food options to our community’s clients with fresh produce, healthy proteins such as meats, fish, and poultry along with low sodium and low sugar canned goods. We provide nutritional education materials and demonstrations on how to prepare a nutritionally balanced meal. Nutritional education along with healthier diets will result in reduced incidents of diabetes, hypertension, and kidney disease in the communities we serve.
