The Montgomery County Council for Aging is on missions to feed those in need throughout the region. The non-profit organization notified the Montgomery County Government in 2019 of its intention to expand its operations to a food pantry and distribution service to meet the expansion of low food security in the Montgomery District. Council on Aging is an organization that regulates food distribution centers and specifically targets the nutritional needs of the elderly; however, everyone, including children, is served.
The food distribution center obtains and distributes more than 1 million pounds annually of food to kitchens located throughout the region and operates outside its current location on Star, with volunteers and two part-time employees. Russell Bogans and Steve Pemberton are described by COA board chairman Ruth Morris as “dedicated” to the recipients they serve. Morris said the two employees took food, inventory, organized, managed, and transported food supplies to the county food pantry volunteer organization. At present, there are 13 food locations throughout the county that are served by the Montgomery County Food Distribution Center.
