Hi Team – For the week ending Sunday the 31st your Stroudwater Food Pantry served 67 families and provided groceries to a total of 143 people. We delivered groceries to the homes of 31 families through our Last Mile home delivery program. 6 new families joined the pantry this week.
Our supermarket food rescue pickups and food donations totaled 5,881lbs. Volunteers for this week included Angie, Anna, Brad, Deirdra & Dennis, Donna & Rhianna, Jean, Jessica, Michelle & Ben & Matt, Rena, and myself.
May was the biggest and busiest month so far this year, with more than 8 tons of food distributed to more than 300 families. 2020 has surely proven to be a challenging year so far; each month we find ourselves distributing more food to more families than the month before. Our ability to do this is due entirely to the great volunteers at Stroudwater Food Pantry, who remain committed to meeting the needs of a large community suffering under the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you all for what you do! — Doug
