Background: Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in February 2004, and since then, The Commons (formerly The Volunteer Center) has held numerous community conversations on ending hunger and poverty in Grant County. We envision a thriving, sustainable, local economy with meaningful work for everyone, and the opportunity for everyone to build a vibrant and hopeful future for our children and grandchildren. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, generous donors, and fruitful community partnerships, The Commons makes our vision reality for food-insecure children and families in Grant County. The Commons' programs are designed to serve and be served by the communities and neighborhoods of Grant County - building positive opportunities for community members of all backgrounds, experiences, ages, and social and economic statuses to not only assist with their needs, but also to come together, work together, and educate.
