Lockport Township provides funding for the F.I.S.H. Pantry located at the Christian Ministry Center. The pantry tries to provide enough food for a two-week period for area residents.

If you do not have a current driver’s license or state id you must bring another form of picture id and current lease or utility bill (electric, gas or water). Documents must contain the applicant’s name and full residence address.
