Ten times each year, a truckload of fresh food is distributed to anyone in need.

Emergency Funds
Emergency rent and utility assistance are available on a limited basis to those who meet eligibility requirements.

Holiday Adoption
Clients are matched with holiday adoption donors to provide some assistance under the Christmas tree.

There are also programs that are offered on a seasonal or intermittent basis.

Ballard Pantry charges nothing for the services it offers. We exist entirely through donations and grants. The wealth of goods offered to individuals and families in crisis each day is obtainable free of charge. We are unique in Lawrence in the quality and variety of clothing, shoes, kitchen, and household items made available to anyone in need.

There is a wide variety of programs and services available to those in crisis, helping to serve our mission of stabilizing families. We recognize that many of the residents of Lawrence and Douglas County are one problem away from devastation. Ballard Pantry wants to help those who are struggling and to see them through a crisis. Ballard Pantry wants to offer a reason to hope for those who have no hope.

To this end, we offer a variety of programs and services.
