Mission

Our mission is to provide temporary food for residents of the surrounding Paonia and Somerset areas.

The intent of the Paonia Food Pantry is not to provide food in a long-term situation, but for those who experience immediate needs due to loss of job, or other life factors that necessitate short term food needs.
