Free Little Food Pantries

There are six free little food pantries all around Starkville

that are stocked multiple times a day by the Starkville Strong team, our dedicated volunteers and other generous community members.

 

Feel free to visit any of these locations and take what

you need. These are accessible 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.  Easy access to food is our goal. 

If you happen to find the pantries empty, there are a couple of options.  Visit our Compiled Resources to see other food options available.

Casserole Kitchen

Church congregations from all around Starkville work together three times every week to provide those in need with freshly made hot meals. Starkville Strong volunteers are also often there to help distribute food and hygiene sacks. 

Meals are served starting at 6 PM on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and at 11 AM on Saturday mornings out of the back entrance of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection. The entrance is easy to locate on University Drive, across the street from the Starkville Public Library, behind the Starkville Strong Free Little Food Pantry.
