Around the holidays, (Easter~ Thanksgiving, Christmas, those numbers increase to 200 per week. The families that it serves consist of the homeless, elderly, disabled, working poor, and out of work.

Over forty volunteers work each week, either in the Pantry on Friday mornings, or shopping to replenish the supplies.

We serve anyone who has need without requiring registration or proof of residency or need.
