One resource available to accomplish this task is the bishops’ storehouse—a place where those in need can go to obtain food and other supplies at the recommendation of their bishop.
The storehouse is filled with commodities provided by fast offerings and other generous donations from members. Food and supplies from the bishops’ storehouse can also be sent to those affected by natural disasters, wars, or economic crises at a moment’s notice.
Storehouses are operated almost exclusively by a staff of volunteers and senior service missionaries, who are called and set apart by their stake presidents. In some cases, a paid manager may oversee and direct the work.
