Five N Two Food Pantry in Cameron Makes the News
People are very excited about the work we are doing here at the pantry. The Five N Two has made the news on several occasions. We are proud to be a part of such an important part of the community. What a blessing to have the local news media catch wind of what we are doing and help us spread the word.
A Day in the Life of Spout Springs
Chick Jacobs is a staff writer at the Fayetteville Observer. In March of 2016 he was taking a bit of a tour of the Johnsonville/Spout Springs area.
During his tour, Mr. Jacobs was gathering info for an upcoming article called “A Day in the Life of Spout Springs.” As he made his way down 24/27, he came across our Grill and decided to check it out. You can read the article to see what he discovered.
An up-and-coming non-profit committed to networking resources in our area visited with us in July, 2015. They wrote a great article giving an outsider’s perspective on our work at the pantry.

A Birthday to Remember

Five N Two Setting the Pace
On May 2, 2014, Marissa Sheldon wrote on the Voices Into Action blog about the new face of the pantry. She tells of how we were once called Martha’s Place, but were renamed to the Five N Two. She goes on to share about the free choice we offer at our facility. The pantry is set up like a grocery store and everyone that enters has the opportunity to choose from different items on the shelf.
