The Lifeway Center is a local community service organization that includes the county's largest food pantry (Shepherd's Nook), providing food assistance to 15% of the local population, hard hit by the recession and economic turmoil. The staff is all-volunteer, and also supported by local churches. The founding church is salemfullgospel.com.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping to feed poor senior citizens, children, and under-employed adults in South-Central Missouri.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing peoples' lives changed for the better. They do more than provide food; they are providing hope to thousands each year.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Good-hearted people. Many of them are professionals and business owners, who offer their expertise, assistance, and resources each month, asking nothing in return.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide staffing more days each week, refurbish their facility, offer more services, and make deliveries to those unable to pick up their food (due to disability/transportaion challenges).

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
