It all began with a hope and a vision by Dayton native, and then YCAP Food Bank Director, Cherie Rose Schmidt (1954-2007). Her hope was for there to be a Food Pantry in every small town in Yamhill County. Cherie visited Dayton in 2002 and secured a host location at Dayton First Baptist Church. A small classroom was used as a shopping area and another small room was added for extra food storage. Today, thanks to Cherie’s vision, there are food pantries located throughout Yamhill County!
To help alleviate hunger by distributing food regularly and on an emergency basis, in a friendly, responsive, sympathetic, helpful, nonjudgmental, and confidential manner.
