Linda H. Ware and Angela Taylor

This food pantry began with $500 dollars and a dream. The idea of the Bremen Food & Clothing Bank was conceived by Linda Ware when she found herself in need of food assistance. She learned of a local food pantry and went there for help. After receiving assistance she began to volunteer there. While that food pantry helped many, she saw the need for something more. In May of 1991 the Bremen Food & Clothing Bank became a reality thanks to the work of Linda, and her daughter Angela Taylor.. The first week in operation 78 families were served. Currently, we serve well over 400 families each week on site. We are also able to help hundreds of other families each week through our Partner Agency Program.
