Doing What’s Needed in Our Community
ABOUT THE PANTRY
The Lifeline Mediation Center Food Pantry is a food distribution program whose mission is to provide referred families and individuals facing emergency situations with one week's supply of healthy food.
For over 15 years, our Food Pantry has been located in the Middle Island community to help feed the citizens of Brookhaven County in times of crisis, unemployment, fire, family violence, medical problems, and other difficult situations. The Pantry provides hungry families and individuals with wholesome food to tide them over during these times of emergency.
We all pay the price of hunger, as the economic and social costs of malnutrition, chronic illness, unemployment, and low productivity rise. We all benefit when fewer are hungry.
