South Benton Food Pantry is located in the Willamette Valley, in the small town of Monroe.

We serve anyone who lives, works or plays in the Monroe School District and beyond and is income qualified (see below). Our food pantry is able to work with other agencies to find the support our clients need, from food, furniture, housing, access to health care, parenting classes, ESL, and so much more.

Our goal is to feed those in need and provide the best nutrition available to us. We often have other non food items available, such as diapers, wipes, and soap products. We know on a limited budget, it is difficult to get everything! Please let us know how we can help!
