There is never a “slow” season at the Food Pantry because the issue of hunger never takes a vacation. That’s why the small army of volunteers makes it their business to make sure the shelves are stocked and our Pantry families are fed without interruption!
The Food Pantry serves 70 - 100 households every three to four weeks, plus backpacks or breakfast/lunch, plus Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets. All together that adds up to about 5000 people annually and close to 50,000+ meals a year!
Our Pantry gives clients four days worth of food every three weeks, with amounts based on household size.
We work with the “Client Choice” model which allows our pantry families to choose the foods they want and need from our nutritionally balanced “grocery lists.” We also now stock our shelves with the foods that are most requested, which ensures a dignified and swift experience for all involved. We have found that this approach translates into tremendous cost savings as we only stock the most requested groceries.
We also have dog and cat food to feed our families' furry members.
