Food Pantry

EPHM is the state-recognized entity supplying food assistance to residents of the town of Starks. The food pantry is currently open twice-monthly, staffed by volunteers. Government funding, corporate grants, and private donations supply the food goods, or money to buy the food goods, which are distributed out of the pantry. Locals will tell you that it has never been easy living in Starks, but in these even tougher than normal economic times, the Food Pantry places an integral role in the community. Currently, the Pantry serves 60 families regularly. It also distributes food baskets at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. The Food Pantry also serves as an information source and a place where people who are in need of certain services find out where to get connected.
