About Us

Least Of These, Inc. is the only full service food pantry serving Christian County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state of Missouri. The growth in the number of people living in poverty has far outpaced the population growth, with over 8,000 people in Christian County who now live in poverty.

Least Of These, Inc. provides food assistance, clothing & household items, cleaning & hygiene items (as available), special evening hours for working clients, and a mobile food pantry to Eastern Christian County.
Monthly over 860 Christian County families, with over 2,260 family members, visit Least Of These, Inc. for assistance because they are living in poverty. They must choose to either pay for food or pay their rent or utilities. Some of our senior clients are faced with paying for their medication or buying food to eat.
