News from the Food Pantry
Thanks to the relentless work of Chris and his Community Garden volunteers, and to the many neighbors who donated fresh produce from their own gardens, we were able to distribute thousands of pounds of healthy, fresh produce to North County Food Pantry clients this fall. Special thanks to Bill, the Produce Peddler, who provided excess garden-fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the harvest season. Families in need often find access to fresh foods difficult, and we are pleased to be a distribution source for these healthy options.
The Pantry is also a distribution center for Tom’s Turkey Drive. You can sign up now at the Pantry during regular opening hours. Whole frozen turkeys (and many of the trimmings to go along with it!) will be distributed on Monday, November 25 from 6:30-7:30 pm at the Pantry to those who have signed up in advance. Volunteers will assist clients pick up each item and will load them in their vehicles, making the process quick and easy! A written note will allow someone else to pick up your turkey basket if you are unable to come that evening.
Volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated in order to make the Pantry run smoothly. We currently need able-bodied helpers on Thursday mornings from 9-11:30 to help unload freight from Second Harvest and Northwest Harvest. Heavy lifting is required.
Reminder: the Pantry will no longer be open on Wednesday evenings to serve clients. If it is impossible for you to pick up food another time, you may ask someone else to do it for you. We will need a dated note from you specifying who is authorized to pick up for you.
We will be closed for holidays on:
Wednesday, November 27
Wednesday, December 25
Wednesday, January 1, 2020
We will, however, be open on Mondays those weeks from 11-2.
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.
