Food Pantry Weekly, 06Jan2016

Greetings Foodies!
I hope you had a safe and joyful Christmas and New Years!  We are looking forward to 2016 as a milestone year for the Food Pantry. Watch this space in coming weeks for some exciting news about our future!
It was another great night at the Food Pantry…soggy, but great!  Lots of first-timers tonight – about one in four – plus several who we had not seen for more than six months. Some people described very long travel times – as much as two hours – across town to get to us tonight. But everyone who made it, even those who arrived after closing time, left with lots of food. God always provides!  I pray everyone made it home safely.
Please pray for all our clients.
Carl Wilson
