FISH Hospitality PantriesFISH Hospitality Pantries (a.k.a. Hospitality Pantries, Inc.) operates four pantries in East, South, Northwest and West Knoxville. We currently provide food to more than 11,000 families every month.
FISH focuses on what more can be done to help ensure that everyone gets enough to eat.
In Knox County 57,000 people live in poverty -- more than 25% of them are children. Thousands of other families live near the poverty line and struggle for the basic necessities of live. The number of families who come to our pantries has more than doubled in the last two years. Learn more about who we are or how people can get help.

NEW CANOPIED PAVILION
In keeping with our values for treating our guests with respect and increasing their accessibility to our pantries, we have added a canopied pavilion on the east end of our Northwest Pantry/ Warehouse Facility to provide shelter for our guests.
Soon after 7 am, people begin to line up to await the 10 am Northwest Knoxville Pantry opening. The new canopy pavilion provides shelter from the sun and rain for the many hundreds of guests coming for food assistance each day to our Northwest Pantry. It also allows for large donations of fresh fruits and vegetables to now be distributed outside in all weather conditions.
Thank you to all who contributed to the successful completion of this project.
