Hi Team – February rolled in with a bang as your Stroudwater Food Pantry served 77 families and provided groceries to a total of 161 people. 46 of the families received groceries through our Last Mile home delivery program. 1 new family joined the pantry this week.
Our supermarket food rescue pickups, food donations and purchases totaled 6,925 lbs. Volunteers for this week included Adam, Albert, Amy & Jake VP, Angie, Jean, Kelly, Laura, Lila & Claire & Amy G, Michelle, Shirley, Tammy and myself.
The most spectacular event of the weekend was our food processing on Friday. Pantry volunteers picked up, weighed, sorted and put away a staggering 4,223 lbs. of food; more than two tons of food, processing more groceries than any other Friday in our history! It was hard, laborious work but volunteers rose to the challenge and got everything ready for home deliveries, for our city agencies who come pick up food boxes, and our regular grocery distribution on Sundays. God Bless our amazing volunteers! — Doug
