Thanks for your faithful giving to help our clients!
We love your donations, but we would appreciate it if they are clean so our volunteers are able to make them available to our clients immediately. Thank you so much.
We are no longer open on Wednesday evening.

News from the Food Pantry April 2021
Despite the pandemic and the obvious stress that puts on families for basic needs, the number of clients visiting the North County Food Pantry is down compared to a year ago. This is puzzling to us and we encourage our neighbors to utilize this valuable community resource. Our mission is to serve clients with respect and efficiency. Our shelves are full, and we are eager to move these resources into the homes of those in need. Visit us on Mondays from 11-2 or on Wednesdays from 9-noon. We are located on the property of Country Church of the Open Bible on Elk-to-Highway.
We continue to distribute $50 gift cards to Safeway. These cards are the result of generous donations from Safeway and their customers. Cards are only available one time a month as supplies last.
The Pantry is participating in a nutrition survey to assess the effectiveness of community programs that address hunger needs. Pantry staff will email a link to the survey to clients who provide us with their email address. Your email will NOT be shared for any other purpose. The survey begins in April and a $20 gift card to a local grocery store will be given to those who complete the survey. Participation is optional, but we encourage you to provide feedback. Call the Pantry (292-2530) or stop by for more information.
· If you like cooking for a crowd, join us twice a month on Wednesday mornings to prepare a brunch for Pantry volunteers. Volunteers include those working in the garden and those who help with inventory, customer service, repackaging, and building and equipment maintenance. This is a nice little perk for those who are so faithful in serving our non-profit organization.
· If you have a truck and time to make a monthly run to the Northwest Harvest Warehouse in the Spokane Valley we could use your help. NW Harvest offers free non-perishable food, supplies, and household goods to local food banks on Mondays and Thursdays. These are busy days at the Pantry so a new volunteer for this task alone would allow us to access much needed items.
Thanks to Julie U. who recently stepped forward to help us with our social media presence. Utilizing new forms of communication will allow us to expand our reach to clients and recruit new volunteers.
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.
