What the Food Pantry Needs – the latest

If when you clicked “needed” you were thinking we need drivers or volunteer sorters for our next pickup, of course we do!  Just drop us a note: [email protected], or tell us on our Contact Us page.  We love students from 7th grade to 12th grade to develop good community service habits, and appreciate their energy for sorting and eyes for checking expiration dates!

“The Food Pantry is so thankful for everything this program has been able to give to the patrons in this town and the pantry volunteers. Because of this program we are able to focus on our patrons and some of their needs outside of the food that has always been given out. Our patrons love the monthly special item and always brighten up when its something that can help their home. Some of the extra items we have done recently or are doing soon include trash bags, zip lock bags, and healing lotions.  We have also been able to continue with our weekly deli meats, cheese and bread, and our monthly diaper give out.”

Please remember to try and avoid family size or jumbo-sized items, these are difficult for us because many patrons are unable to use or store large containers before they go bad and we are unable to divide and share between multiple patron and we have limited storage.

If your personal charitable giving includes community service organizations like ours, we hope you’ll donate to help defray our ongoing costs,
