Recently the food pantry has been busier than ever. One week we had forty one new families sign in to receive help. There was a loss of 400 jobs in the city and many of those are finding their way to the food pantry doors. Thankfully donations have been generous. We are trying to meet the needs of those seeking help by temporarily distributing food to all letters of the alphabet every week instead of every other week. This means that we have to distribute less food to each family in order to meet the need of so many. We are now providing over 300 hot meals each week and last week we distributed food to over 330 families. The lines are reaching around the block.
