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 2017, we provided an average of 14,000 meals on that one Monday, feeding approximately 1,300 people at the end of each month.
We are able to serve
so many due to the generosity of many donors and resources available to us including:
