Northwood Food Pantry Reaches Out for Support
Emergency Food Pantry (NEFP) is reaching out to the community for
support due to the unusually high demand for food and related
supplies over this past winter. The food pantry been very busy over
the past year and is at a point of need for both food and monetary
donations. Many of the people who have been served include those who
are unemployed or recently lost a job, people with serious medical
problems, and people on fixed incomes unable to meet their basic
needs. Formed in the early 1980’s, the pantry has been able to
continue to provide this service due to the generous support of many
individuals and organizations throughout Northwood. At this time the
food pantry is seeking assistance so that the work of local food
distribution may continue. It has been the hope of NEFP that no
child or adult in the community would be without needed food or
basic health supplies. All donations, of any size, are greatly
appreciated. If you would like to donate food or a monetary
contribution to your local food pantry, please contact Food Pantry
Coordinator Pat Jacobsmeyer at
