Due to the generosity of residents in Moniteau County, MCMC's building is almost completed. Many donations of materials and labor have resulted in the interior finishing phase to be completed well under budget. Construction has taken over two years, but MCMC has adhered to its decision not to incur debt in the process.
The boards is now working diligently not only to complete construction, but to prepare to merge the Mobile Food Pantry, the United Methodist church pantry, the Buddy Pack program and Project Share into the beautiful new space and under one administration. Operational procedures and guidelines are being developed that will aid MCMC in living its mission to provide food and clothing assistance to the poorest of neighbors in Moniteau County.
