The pantry works hand in hand with both partner service organizations and local businesses to advance our mission.
About Our Partners
Partnerships are a critical aspect of the pantry’s mission and operations. We know we can’t solve food insecurity alone, working together we are able to have a greater impact.
Union Farmer’s Market: The Union Farmer’s Market is held on Fridays just outside the food pantry and hosts local farmers selling their goods and produce!
Sani e Felici Farm: A small scale MOFGA certified organic farm run by a husband and wife team since 2013. They deliver over 1,500 pounds of vegetables to area food pantries annually!
Common Market: Union’s local grocery store and market, offering fresh locally sourced foods. Common Market runs regular fundraising drives for the pantry.
Knox County Gleaners: Knox County Gleaners has a new home collaborating with Come Spring Food Pantry to serve all of Western Knox County. The pantry hosts the Gleaner’s Cool Bot storage and is in build-out stages for a commercial kitchen for processing, creating ready to heat & eat meals along with a classroom for teaching and community events.
Waldo County Woodshed: A volunteer non-profit group that provides free firewood for people in need.
