The Story Behind FISH of Westminster
FISH OF WESTMINSTER was established in 1970 by a group of Westminster Christians, called to express their love and concern for their neighbors. In the early days, FISH was the emergency service referral network for the entire city. As the city grew and matured, and more social services became available, FISH evolved in two neighborhood food pantries, Westminster Presbyterian Church & Westminster United Methodist Church.
Since 2014 Don Cadwallader & Melissa Dukes manage the two FISH pantries for Fish of Westminster. The FISH board consists of six members, three from each church. Since they opened in 1996, the WPC food pantry has provided over 1.9 million meals to the people of Westminster.
