Clarksville, Virginia, Food Pantry
Who Operates the Pantry?
The Pantry is operated by volunteers from ten local churches, the Lions' Club, and other individuals who are committed to being the best possible stewards of the donated and purchased food and assisting each client in securing part of their food needs.
