Food Pantry Weekly, 15Jul2015

Greetings Foodies!

It was another great day at the Food Pantry. Twenty-two people volunteered their time this week – what a miracle. I guess I’ve always been in the slow group, but I’m finally learning to really trust God, just by seeing Him be so faithful in providing workers and food. And the volunteers seem to have a great time too! Tonight we had three generations of the Koffend family and all six of them were busy helping. What a crew!

During the past week the Trustees approved the purchase and installation of a new 49 cubic foot commercial refrigerator for the Food Pantry, as well as the addition of dedicated electrical circuits for that unit and a future freezer. Thanks so much to all involved! We hope to have the new fridge up and running next week.

Please pray for all our clients.

Carl
