The Gibson Area Food Pantry is a not-for-profit organization committed to making food and on occasion other household items available to those in need in Ford County and the Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley school district.
The Gibson Area Food Pantry would not exist if not for the outpouring of financial and volunteer support provided by area churches, civic organizations, Gibson Area Hospital, GCMS school district, local businesses, and individual donors
