Emergency Food Pantry

The Emergency Food Pantry is a food distribution program whose mission is to provide referred families and individuals facing emergency situations with one week's supply of healthy food.

For over 40 years, the Emergency Food Pantry has been located in the Fargo-Moorhead community to help feed the citizens of Cass and Clay counties in times of crisis, unemployment, fire, family violence, medical problems, and other difficult situations. The Pantry provides hungry families and individuals with wholesome food to tide them over during these times of emergency.

We all pay the price of hunger, as the economic and social costs of malnutrition, chronic illness, unemployment, and low productivity rise. We all benefit when fewer are hungry.

CHARISM is unique is its neighborhood-based approach – our offices and programs are purposely located within walking distance of the families we serve. This lets us be a part of the neighborhood and see first-hand how we can help support our neighbors and build a stronger Fargo.

CHARISM is special in its approach to youth and families. We do not just offer a safe place for children to be after school or during the summer, we also get to reinforce what they are learning in school and teach them new skills. Our mentors and staff provide educational support by helping with homework and academic activities, but they also model social skills, teach positive decision-making, and become someone a child knows cares about them.

CHARISM focuses on community outreach, to help neighbors get to know each other and build a sense of trust and respect. CHARISM loves to connect our neighbors with other community organizations and groups, too – CHARISM wouldn’t exist without collaboration with groups like Project English and NDSU Extension! We’re always seeking ways to connect our neighbors with the community outside of their immediate neighborhood, and we also love to bring in programs right to the neighborhood to increase access to these resources.

CHARISM realizes that making a difference in the lives of the people we serve is a community effort, we couldn’t do it without the help of some wonderful partners! We partner with others in to build the strongest community that we can. We work closely with the Fargo and West Fargo Public Schools, the Fargo Park District, the Fargo Police Department, colleges, churches, and numerous other organizations in Fargo. We hope you will help us continue in our efforts to build stronger neighborhoods with opportunities for all neighbors to reach their goals and potential!

Back Pack Program

Great Plains Food Bank

We believe that when a child is fed, they are equipped to learn, grow and imagine a future filled with opportunity.

Childhood hunger has an impact in our communities. During the school year more than 33,000 children across North Dakota qualify for and greatly rely on the federal free and reduced lunch program to meet their daily nutritional needs. But on weekends, many of these children struggle with hunger.

Hunger amongst our children can have lifelong and extremely costly consequences. Hungry children suffer physical, emotional and developmental impairment. They are sick and hospitalized more often. Hungry children don't learn as well at school, which in turn, limits their potential and productivity as adults. Adults who experienced hunger as children are often not as well prepared mentally, emotionally, physically, or socially to perform in today's work environment.

Got No Milk Program/Fargo Public Schools Development Foundation

For the past six years, our Foundation has worked hard to raise funds for the GOT NO MILK program which provides milk for elementary students for their mid-morning snack. Teachers tell us that morning milk truly contributes to increased attention in the classroom, and we all know how important it is for physical development.

In partnership with Fargo Public Schools, it is our goal to provide one serving of milk or juice during mid-morning snack break to all students eligible for free and reduced lunches. New this year, we will also provide milk for students who are not eligible for free and reduced lunch, but whose families are struggling to make ends meet.


Our focus and expertise is in working with teens, parents and young adults under 22 years of age. Most of the services are free and when there is a charge it is based on a family’s ability to pay.

In our services directory are programs for runaway, homeless and street youth; juvenile offenders; youth failing in school; youth suspended or expelled from school; young parents and pregnant moms (under 22); youth arrested and unable to immediately return home; youth needing emergency care: youth needing peer support or cross-age mentoring; and youth with anger issues. We provide family counseling during the day and in the evening at the convenience of the parents.

F-M Coalition for Homeless Persons

The Fargo-Moorhead Coalition for Homeless Persons began in 1989 in response to information-sharing needs of the four emergency shelters then operating in the area. The number of homeless people in the community was steadily rising and was higher than the national average. The Coalition became a forum for discussion about the system-based challenges of people experiencing poverty and homelessness, as well as a means of sharing and pooling resources. Today, with more than 60 active partners, the Coalition works on systems change initiatives, state and local policy advocacy, service provider education, and innovations in homeless service delivery that emphasize fairness, vulnerability, and the efficient use of resources.
