What's New at the Emergency Food Pantry

Emergency Food Pantry News
Greetings from the Emergency Food Pantry!!!  We are a busy place!!   Thus far this year we have provided 37,999
meals to those having a difficult time making ends meet. We are deeply thankful for the donations for the
Emergency Food Pantry but we could sure use more! Items needed are: tuna, soup, jelly, cereal, pasta, sauce,
veggies, and fruit.
Thankfully we have been receiving fresh produce donations as well and we are able to put these in the pantry
as well as dehydrate and freeze for use later.
If you ever have any questions regarding the Emergency Food Pantry, please feel free to contact us at
366-1787 and ask for Bridget.
