ICM Food Pantry
Stearns, KY 42647
Details: Simply put, ICM's Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which collects donated surplus and salvageable food locally, as well as food purchased at wholesale, salvage and co-op prices, then distributes this emergency food to hungry people throughout McCreary County and eastern Wayne County in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of southeastern Kentucky. The Food Bank also solicits financial contributions which are used to make wholesale food purchases. Currently we make such purchases through Kentucky's 2nd Harvest. ICM's Food Pantry was opened in 2007 as a joint project of Integrated Community Ministries and Hills and Hollers Ministries, Inc. The Food Pantry's mission is to distribute as much nutritious food as possible to local families with need. We have grown to the point that we now distribute 1 week's worth of food to 150 families per month. In order to supply this need, we acquire food through a variety of sources, including local market donations, community food drives and the purchase of food supplies in bulk at wholesale prices.
