Thank you for your generosity for this great cause!
Our attendance for March at the pantry was running around 110 each week. There are always more at the end of the month when the Missions team serves breakfast. Help arrived from the Annual Tour de Murrieta & Kids Bicycle Race on March 9thas the children brought canned goods instead of paying an entrance fee for their race. A local real estate office collected food and the National Honor Society Chapter at Vista Murrieta High School collected supplies for the homeless. The Breakfast Lion’s Club collected cans of soup for the pantry at their Stone Soup luncheon. What would we do without our friends in the community? We are truly grateful to them all.

The absolute two favorite items from the choice table are Dinty Moore Stew and Canned Chicken breast. Both of these items are too expensive for the pantry budget so they only appear on the table when someone donates them. If you’re thinking of bringing something for the shopping cart on Easter, either of those items will make someone happy the following Friday.

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