Client Choice Food Pantry

The Client Choice Food Pantry is an innovative approach to providing food to our hungry neighbors.  Client Choice is just what it sounds like.   Clients can go through the pantry and select their own food instead of receiving a pre-packed or standard box of groceries. They are not given items they already have, do not like, or cannot eat for health or personal reasons. They choose for themselves what products they receive. The idea is to serve our hungry neighbors in a way that gives them a sense of dignity and control, limits waste (since they tend not to take food they won’t use), and allows them to tailor the help they receive to be the best possible fit for their own unique situation.

The Client Choice Pantry serves as a stop-gap measure to help families and individuals access food when they are unable to get food from traditional programs and agencies in the community. Currently Rising Up is providing food for over 725 individuals in Morgan County monthly. In addition to the Food Pantry, Rising Up has been able to provide 895 hot meals to clients through the Warming Center.

Senior Commodities

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a USDA program designed to improve the health of low-income people at least 60 years of age, by supplementing their diets with nutritious foods.  Eligible seniors receive a monthly food box consisting of non-perishable protein, milk (powdered or UHT), juice, cereal, canned or dried fruits and vegetables, refrigerated cheese nutrition education and recipes are also included in the food boxes. Rising Up serves as a host site and to assist in outreach, certification and distribution of CSFP food boxes monthly to ensure no senior goes hungry.
