PACA stands for "Paola Association of Church Action".  This organization has the help and direction of many of the local area churches. 

One of the biggest services offered by PACA is the food pantry.  In order to get assistance, you would have to visit one of the local churches to fill out the proper paperwork and you can be furnished with groceries to accomodate any size family on a monthly basis.

The Food Pantry is maintained at My Father's House.  Any food donations can be delivered directly to 1004 N. Pearl.  Enter through the front door and let the desk attendant know that the donations are for PACA.
