Food Pantry Report May 20, 2020

The pantry operation is operating under “full steam.”

If you have been following the news you know that demand on pantries across the nation have dramatically increased.  The Pantry at St. John’s has seen this kind of increase. In the month of April, there were 368 client visits St. John’s pantry.  In 2019 our April use was 247 clients.   During the busiest week the pantry provided groceries to feed approximately 450 individuals since our average family size is three.

The community has been EXTREMELY generous.

Individuals and businesses have donated to keep the pantry stocked. Below are a few shout-outs:

 

The financial support has been tremendous as well allowing inventory to remain well-stocked.

We are especially grateful to those volunteers who keep the pantry staffed. A special thank you to Laura Dixon-Laser and Michelle Flanagan who are currently spearheading the efforts and to our entire H.A.T Packs army of volunteers who are dedicated to this mission!
