News from the Food Pantry August 2022
If you visit the North County Food Pantry, you will notice our fresh new look! New flooring was installed first, and now we have improved lighting thanks to a generous volunteer. Work spaces and hallways have been upgraded with new fixtures and bulbs. New shelving has also been installed in one of our storerooms where extra items are organized and easily accessible. The Pantry is a bright, cheerful, organized and welcoming “Gathering Place” in our community.
With rising food and fuel prices, we are serving an increasing number of clients each week. We are particularly pleased at the number of new families who have come to the Pantry for help. We have plenty of food to distribute, so no one in our community should go hungry. All are welcome and we promise to serve you with the kindness you deserve.
Our Community Garden is now harvesting peas, radishes, chives, and rhubarb with lots of other fresh produce to follow. Thanks to a local nursery, we also have FREE vegetable, herb, and flowering plants for the taking. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just a beginner, we have plants to offer. Stop by and take what you can use.
A family moving from our area recently donated a variety of household items and clothing for us to offer free to our clients. We welcome donations that can be re-cycled, re-used or re-purposed. Because we have limited storage space, we cannot accept furniture, and ask that donations be dropped off during Pantry hours (Monday 11-2, Wednesday 9-noon).
Now our HELP WANTED appeal…
We need a Monday set-up volunteer from 8:30-11 AM. This would ideally be a weekly commitment.
We need help in organizing our handicap equipment. We have wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, commodes, canes, bath accessories and more that need attention. This is likely a one-time job.
We need a volunteer who would be willing to clean our bathrooms and common areas every two weeks.
Lastly, thanks to the donors that brought in farm fresh eggs, produce and dog food last month. We always appreciate donations! If you are looking for a way to make a difference in our neighborhood, consider donating toiletries, cleaning supplies, paper products, laundry and dish soap, baby diapers, or baking supplies. These items are necessary for families and are hard to procure from our “food” suppliers,

New Hope loves donations! Many donations are left after hours. If you are leaving donations after hours please make sure they are under our roof or under the youth house deck roof. If they are out in the rain and snow it will ruin many of the donations.
