1 out of every 9 Medford residents struggles with food insecurity. What that means is that 1 out of every 9 of our neighbors is forced to choose between purchasing food and paying for other essentials such as rent, bills, and medication.
To help meet this need, our micro food pantry (located in front our building at 144 North Street in Medford) is open 24/7 for anyone to give or receive a donation of food.
What began as a simple expression of Hillside Community Church’s commitment to loving our neighbor in tangible ways has become a citywide movement. There are now 17 micro food pantries installed around the City of Medford.
