The Pantry is still Open
PANTRY REPORT FOR 6 APRIL
Continuing response to our food needs gave us another three and a half tons of non-perishable food this past week, in addition to the six tons received the previous week. Thank you! With your help we distributed about 2.3 tons of non-perishable food and about the same weight of perishable food (bread and pastries, fresh vegetables and fruit, etc. – donated by local stores) to 248 families in the week ending this past Monday, 6 April.
New volunteers are helping tremendously to handle our increasing food donations and increased clients, although – with mandated limits on the number of volunteers -- it takes time to sort everything coming in. Shortages evident now: “meals in a can” (canned stew/canned pasta/canned chili), canned fruit, pasta sauce, and dry soup/ramen. As always, we need your plastic and paper bags.
We regret distribution safety precautions due to COVID-19 make it impossible to distribute non-food items probably for the next several months, at least. Please avoid such donations for the near future as we lack sufficient space to handle storage of these items. Baby food and diaper distribution is also difficult, except during periods when fewer families are waiting for food. For the moment, we are sending excess baby items to Project Gabriel.
Pantry drop off times:
Mondays 6:30 am to 1 pm
Fridays 9:30 am to 1 pm,
Sundays 2-5 pm
We are still looking for volunteers to help serve in the pantry on Mondays. Due to the health concerns from the coronavirus we ask that volunteers be in good health and under the age of 40
