We have more space! We have the transportation. In 2013 we completed an addition to our pantry building. The entire old building complete with a new walk-in freezer is used exclusively for storage. The new addition features a check-in computer station and a long 22 foot distribution counter. We have a new “used” box truck, which has greatly increased our ability to procure large quantities of food and transport it protected from the elements.
Our biggest need remains the same, more food! Despite an improving economy, food insecurity remains and even grows. The average monthly number of families seeking food assistance has increased from 509 families in 2012 to 610 in 2013 and is now averaging 717 families every month in 2014. We need to find more food sources. We need to attract more volunteers to handle the additional food. We need to increase our fund raising, donations and grants to pay for it.
