PANTRY SERVICE AND SUPPLY UPDATES HORTAGES AS OF JANUARY 10:

Shortages in order of need: (1) dry unsweetened cereal, (2) pasta sauce, (3) “meals in a can”: (stew/canned pasta/chili/etc.), and (4) dry rice/beans.

Plastic newspaper bags and plastic grocery bags are always needed. Paper grocery bags are also needed.


NOT needed at this time: tuna/canned meat/canned fish, or mac and cheese (at current projected client numbers we have over 11 weeks supply of each on hand, or canned vegetables (currently almost 9 weeks supply on hand).


We received approximately 1.63 tons of non-perishable food over the week up until 10 January. With this and current reserves we expect to cover 17 and 24 January projected distributions, with the above projected shortages for the 31 January distribution.


We gave out some 1.97 tons of non-perishable food, and somewhat more perishable food (bread and pastries, fresh vegetables and fruit, etc. – primarily donated by local stores) to 202 families in the week ending Monday, 10 January. Many thanks to all those helping us to help our neighbors in need!


We encourage volunteers, including student volunteers, who are essential to help sort, store and distribute all this food!
