The CLM Food Pantry is open five days a week to meet the food needs of Clark County residents.
- At each visit, clients must have a picture ID, a piece of mail with current address, and proof of the number of people living in their household.
- Clients can visit the food pantry once each month to shop in our food pantry with an assigned volunteer.
- Homeless clients can visit the food pantry once a week and will receive food that doesn’t require cooking.
Clients must bring this information with them each time they visit.
We need support from our community to continue meeting the food needs of our clients. Our greatest needs are financial support and volunteer help.

The mission of the Center for Lay Ministries is to provide services to vulnerable populations in the local community with compassion, dignity, and respect. We thank you for your patience and cooperation!
Serving Clark County residents who are at or below 185% of poverty, the Food Pantry is available to clients one time during each calendar month. We follow USDA guidelines and operate a CLIENT CHOICE food pantry. The CLIENT CHOICE model is rapidly replacing the old “fixed bag or box” model that once was prevalent in the U.S. This model allows our clients to retain a sense of dignity and it also means less waste, as the client who is choosing the food is the only one who knows about allergies, dietary restrictions and likes and dislikes.
Clients are required to bring a recent piece of mail to verify residency (unless homeless) and I.D. for all those who are in the household.
