October 2018 Food Pantry News

 
The pantry continues to be busy. We have had some unique and exciting donations this month.
First, there was a bridal shower that had food gifted to the shower, and then they  donated it to the pantry. Secondly, our local FFA participated in a 10 –gallon challenge. They purchased 10 gallons of milk to support dairy farmers and then  donated those to our food pantry! The FFA challenged other groups to do the same thing. Their hope was that this challenge would spread in central Illinois.
 
 
Last of all, the Oakland United Methodist Church Food Pantry had a surplus of cereal which they generously shared with us. We have been richly blessed with the generosity of many groups lately. The families who come to the food pantry are very  appreciative of all the kindness. The pantry is in need of canned fruit,  toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, toilet tissue and laundry soup. Thanks for supporting!

Food Pantry News: September 2018

 
 
 
 
We helped 18 families in July.  Many of those families have not asked for help August, but I have had calls from six new families that moved into our community.  They were all very grateful for the food they received.  It seems as though each month is different. I would like to thank you for your continued support of this much need  project.  The pantry is low on toilet tissue, Kleenex, paper towels, canned fruit, fruit juice, grape jelly, and cereal.
