Ranchlands Food Pantry

The RFP is a community initiative that went from an idea to a passion project over night. The goal of the initiative is to help create easier access to food for those in the community who may need some support. Together we can make Ranchlands even stronger!

The RFP is still only in its infancy and thus may grow and change as required to fit the needs of the community! Currently we collect donations to maintain a pantry and build hampers for residents in need based on their individual requirements. We hope to be able to expand our program in the future, as well as offer in person “shopping events” so stay tuned for updates!
