Statistics may be found for both the Soup Kitchen and the Emergency Food Pantry for each month at: 

The Emergency Food Pantry provides groceries once a month to feed the whole household and single bags of groceries as the need arises. 

We have found that the need is greatest at the end of the month when resources are about gone. Therefore, we provide bags of groceries for each person in the household on the last Monday of the month. This is done through "food choice" by which a person may "shop" for the items most needed and best for their families. These bags provide nutritionally balanced meals which will serve one person, 3 meals a day, for 4 days. 

In 2016, we provided an average of 14,000 meals on that one Monday, feeding approximately 1,300 people at the end of each month. 

Emergency Food Pantry

The GWIM Soup Kitchen ​provides a nutritionally balanced hot meal each weekday from 11 am to 1 pm  to all who are in need.

In 2016, we served an average of 15,000 hot meals and bagged lunches, as well as fresh produce, baked goods, meats, and dairy products each month, serving approximately  

hundreds of people each day.

We also served bag lunches on Sundays and holidays thanks to our faith based communities generous donations of lunches.
