Great week at Amazing Grace Food Pantry! 103 families were served groceries this week. Thanks to all who generously give their time to give the families a warm welcome and full boxes of food. It’s good to know that these 417 people will have nutritious meals this week. Their situations are often temporary due to illness, job loss or other unforeseen circumstance. Because of your generosity to fill the need of your neighbors, these families can have peace of mind for another week.
Thanks to those who can donate spare change each month. Even a $10 recurring monthly donation can help!
Nutritious food is so important – it impacts health and education.

New Building Update: Currently we’re waiting for electrical layout and County approval of the plans before power can be installed. Hope to have this done in the next 2-3 weeks, then power by end of March. Plans to start framing the inside are underway. We’re still looking for donation of Concrete sidewalk work, so spread the word to those you know who would like an opportunity to give back in this way. Also looking for donations of sheetrock, HVAC and a septic system.
More materials needs are listed at Building Hope – any partial donation for these items will help get the doors open sooner. Warm weather is coming soon – we’d love to have clients in the new facility before it gets hot.
The pantry is just a tool for YOU to make a difference in the lives of so many.
Thank you for loving your neighbor with your support!
Melissa has a family of 5 and started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry in November. She is homeless, although living in a modest motel at the moment. She tried to go to another pantry but missed the opening day or time. They turned her away with only an emergency contact number to call. They never returned her 2 calls, so she sought out another pantry and found Amazing Grace. She is so grateful to have found Amazing Grace Food Pantry where everyone has big hearts. Because of her current situation, she’s not able to cook meals that require more than a microwave. Amazing Grace Food Pantry tailors her box to make it easier for her to make meals at home.
