From Newport Food Pantry Manager Katherine Myers
One of the families who came to the pantry this week is so glad to move themselves and their children out of their tent and into a friend’s garage. The dad has a job but they are having trouble saving enough to get into an apartment of their own. It’s a common story as resources are so strained during this long economic downturn. Receiving food that is high in nutrition is so important for children who are living in poverty. We are so grateful to all the people who are harvesting produce for the pantry. It truly does fly off the shelves faster than we can put it on.
Food donations can be dropped off here at the pantry Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM, and Saturday morning until noon. If the pantry location and hours aren’t convenient for you, many wonderful organizations and businesses keep our food collection containers on site. For a complete list, please click here. Every donation, large or small, helps us feed our hungry friends and neighbors.
With Much Appreciation,
Newport Food Pantry
