Stroudwater Pantry Status – 12/4/16

Hi Team – This Sunday your Stroudwater Food Pantry served 45 families, for a total of 149 people receiving groceries. 9 new families joined us this week, taking us to a new total of 504 households registered to receive groceries on a regular basis.

Our Shaw’s food pickup and two Hannaford food pickups on Friday yielded a total of 1,819 lbs.; donations came to 589 lbs. for a total of 2,405 lbs. of food processed for the week.   This week’s volunteers processed 1¼ tons of food, and included Anne, Adam, Jenn, Michael C, Jean, Steve, Karlene, Ellen, Terry, Laura, Angie and myself.   

What’s Happening at SFP:

  • Thank you Health Source Chiropractic Center on Brighton Ave!! They have concluded their food drive on our behalf, collecting 328 lbs. of can food and other dry stores, and also collecting $225 in donations and Hannaford gift cards.
  • Thank you Creating Space Yoga on Congress Street!! They have concluded their food drive on our behalf, collecting a box of can food and other dry stores.  I have encouraged them to consider hosting another food drive leading up to Easter, 2017.

Your Stroudwater Food Pantry now serves over 500 families in the greater Portland area!!  Thank you Church family for your continued support that makes this possible, and a big Thank You to the Volunteers of SFP whose tireless commitment to serve those in need exemplifies the words of our Savior when He said,

“For I was hungry, and you fed me…”                                                 — Doug
