In November 2002, the Murphysboro Food Pantry officially incorporated as a stand-alone, 501(c) non-profit entity devoted to collecting and distributing food to qualifying needy individuals in Jackson County. Thirteen years later, the organization is operated from a much larger building and serves thousands more families a year, but the sole purpose remains constant... to provide food to hungry individuals and families living in Jackson County.
