The Food Pantry currently serves over 3,000 people in the community, and is staffed by 50-60 volunteers. At Thanksgiving we put dinner with all the fixings on the table for usually about 100 families. Clientele are referred by Social Services and/or by United Way.
Keep the Food Pantry in mind when you do your grocery shopping this week. Suggested items include canned corn, peas, fruit, spaghetti sauce; boxes of instant mashed potatoes, pasta, cereal, macaroni and cheese; packages of beans, rice, ramen noodles; pancake mix and syrup, peanut butter and jelly, canned chicken and tuna, hot dogs and hot dog buns. Monetary donations must be marked Food Pantry.
