We believe there is dignity in choice and allow our visitors to take what they need without question.
Our shoppers’ needs are very real and whatever way we can help, we will. Giving food provisions like fresh fruits and vegetables, and a variety of shelf-stable goods to anyone in need is our primary mission.
We strive to make a personal connection with each shopper, letting them know that they are cared for and that they are important to us. We believe there is dignity in choice and allow our visitors to take what they need without question.
Our neighbors in need do not come to us from just one demographic—they come from all walks of life. Diverse paths and life circumstances have brought them to us. We are currently serving nearly 200 families every week.
Some of these neighbors are homeless. Some live in cars, abandoned buildings, shelters or less than adequate housing. Some are parents of small children. They are employed, underemployed, some unemployed, and even some who are retired. Some live close by, some are travelers. Some are shy. Some are outgoing. Some visit the pantry every week, some only visit with us only once or twice.
We keep the process of shopping very simple. We do not ask shoppers to qualify or prove their need. If a shopper claims to have a need, we help to fill it. No judgment—no questions.
