Least Of These, Inc.
Nixa, MO 65714
Details: Least Of These, Inc. is the only full service food pantry serving Christian County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state of Missouri. The growth in the number of people living in poverty has far outpaced the population growth, with over 8,000 people in Christian County who now live in poverty. Least Of These, Inc. started in 1998 as a community outreach project of a Nixa Church. In our 1st month, 7 families received food. By the end of the 1st year 100 families were receiving food. In 2014 that number grew to 1,800 families. Least Of These, Inc. continues to experience steady growth every year. In the past 5 years alone, it has been necessary to double the size of the food pantry and clothing room and expand services to keep up with the increased need in Christian County.
