Our food pantry helps thousands of people each month. We give three-day emergency "food boxes" to families in need, up to six times a year per family. But food is just the beginning.
In 2013 alone, we provided:
- emergency food orders to 31,402 people-- 26 percent of whom were children 12 years old or younger
- diapers to 1,653 families, beyond what was distributed with food orders
- help avoiding an eviction or power shut off to 106 families and help paying for gas or bus fare for 3,053 families.
It is only through the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors, of both food and money, that we can help provide these services.
