The Clay County Food Pantry began distributing food in 1992 at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, using the basement of Oak Forest United Methodist Church. This non-denominational, ecumenical effort has the vision to resolve the suffering of Clay County's hunger "one box at at time". In 1995, the organization incorporated and obtained 501(c)(3) status. With demand growing, and space a challenge, in 2000, the Hinton Center generously provided land on their campus, for the Clay County Food Pantry to open a purpose-built facility, dedicated to providing food to those less fortunate.
