News from the Food Pantry October 2020
As we enter the season of cooler weather and increased utility expenses, it may be a good time to consider how the North County Food Pantry can assist your family. We are affiliated with national, regional, and local networks that receive fresh food and staples from manufacturers and retailers. Second Harvest and Northwest Harvest have both expanded their reach during this pandemic, recognizing the economic impact of unemployment on families. In addition, our partnering with Feed Spokane has enabled us to access local food sources at reduced or no-cost. There is no reason for our neighbors in Elk and Chattaroy to suffer from food insecurity when we have more than ample inventory. Our mission is to serve with kindness, efficiency, and dignity those who are suffering economic hardship. Please don’t be shy or feel that you are taking from others if you visit us. There is plenty to meet the needs of everyone who seeks food assistance.
Thanks to a local Girl Scout Troop, we have boxes of cookies to give away. Local Girl Scouts gave buyers the option of donating cookies to the Pantry, rather than being tempted by these sweet goodies in their homes. Lucky for us, many opted to donate their purchase!
The Pantry was also the recipient of donated beef from the Country Store in Spokane. Protein sources are always in short supply, so this was a much-appreciated gift.
The Inlander Newspaper is compiling a list of charitable organizations and will include information about the North County Food Pantry. Distributed throughout the Inland Empire, this listing will give information about Pantry hours, location, types of services and service area. Remember, we serve residents in 99009 (Elk) and 99003 (Chattaroy) and 99156 (Newport) addresses that reside in Spokane County only. Other local food banks serve residents of Deer Park, Newport, and Mead.
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.
