Because there has been a surge in need, the Syracuse Food Pantry is reemphasizing its “Support a Family” program.  They serve about 100 families from Turkey Creek township per month.  Families get about 1 week’s supply of food, cleaning supplies, and dry goods per visit and are only allowed to visit once per month.  The Food Pantry stocks primarily non-perishable food, but also has 5 residential freezers and 2 refrigerators for perishable food.  They also collect clothing.

The food bank is located in the basement of Grace Lutheran Church on Main Street, next to the Library.  Hours are Monday and Tuesday 9-12pm and 1-4:15pm and Wednesday 9-12pm.  Contact Arlene Glover at or (574) 457-5450 with any questions.
