Nancy Jaggers and Elaine Graber met with the Stryker Rotarians and told them of the services provided by the Stryker Community Food Pantry. The Pantry was started in 1982 when the local churches got together to assist three families in the Stryker community who had fires in their homes. Each of the area churches helped out at that time and all still have a representative on the food pantry board. The pantry is housed in First Lutheran Church and is well supported by the community and churches. The pantry board has elected to send food out of the area during large natural disasters but for the most part the pantry serves the people of the Stryker area. The pantry only takes donations from the community and does not get assistance from any other source. The pantry also takes donations of money and uses those funds to assist local people. The board has a standing rule requiring that a minimum of two board members must approve giving out funds.
