|YOUR LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES|
We are fortunate to have so many service and food providers in our community that care about our homeless, hungry, poor, disabled, homebound, and elderly members of society. There are many providers throughout the state that deliver complete meals to the homebound or disabled individuals, and there are even grocery stores, food pantries, and internet companies like AMAZON that either do home deliveries or set up a certain day each week for participants to select many types of nutritious foods.
Their goal is to provide nutritious meals to ALL those in need. Nutritious foods come from donations by MARKET BASKET, SHAW’S, WHOLE FOODS, HANNAFORD, PANERA BREAD, and other grocery markets and food chains throughout the state. We THANK THEM ALL, even those I didn’t mention, for their generosity, support, and kindness.
I’m hearing that the one concern of our food pantries is NOT BEING ABLE TO GIVE THE FOOD BEFORE IT NEEDS TO BE DISCARDED. They do their best to feed EVERYONE IN NEED so that there IS NO WASTE OF GOOD FOOD AND that NO ONE GOES HUNGRY. If you or someone you know is in need, make a few calls to find out where your food pantry is. Many churches, YMCA’s, and organizations like Easter Seals, ServiceLink, United Way, Salvation Army, and others may be able to help answer your questions.
No matter what the circumstances are, there is help and support out there. All you need to do is be willing to receive it and be grateful.
