Feeding the Community - Donations Needed!
Updated: Apr 26, 2022
Our Community Food Pantry has been a boon to families facing food insecurity, but the shelves are frequently emptied. Donations are desperately needed, either in the form of monetary donations online, items sent directly from Amazon, or non-perishable goods dropped off directly to the pantry.
The need for donations is even greater now, with the ending of additional funding for SNAP - the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. SNAP benefits have been enhanced throughout the peak of COVID, but after May these enhancements will be removed, and some families will find their benefits cut in half.
