We completed our first year at our new 211 Commerce Drive location in Franklin.
This was a record year for us in many ways.
- We served more people than ever before. In 2015, we served households 16,827 times. This is a 39% increase in households served compared to 2014. This equates to serving 3134 unique families who were eligible to obtain food up to 2 times/month.
- Our clients continue to tell us they like selecting the food themselves, they like that it’s faster and they say our volunteers are so warm and friendly. They thank us and tell us “God bless you”.
- Our move to our new facility in April 2015 went very well with volunteers helping in every way possible as we implemented a new way of operation in our new facility. Their flexibility and positive approach to all the changes has made this move so successful.
- Our warehouse area gives us more opportunity to receive a variety of donated foods to feed the hungry. This greater amount of donated food, including food from Midwest and Gleaners Food Bank, has allowed us to serve more households while staying within our budget… with enough funds to purchase eggs (a big hit with families) and other essential food items.
Together, we are alleviating hunger in our community. Imagine… a world without hunger, that’s our vision.
Frequently, we’re asked what’s needed at the Pantry. We love any food or hygiene items that are donated. In particular, we need:
- Canned meats
- Peanut butter & Jelly
- Breakfast cereal
- Toilet paper or Paper towels
