Food Pantry Weekly, 20Apr2016

Greetings Foodies!
.
It was another great day at the Food Pantry!  Our early check-in group was smaller than usual, then once we opened the arrival rate of clients stayed light until about 6:30, but then we had an uptick of late arrivers. And clients seemed like they were all just plodding through, at times just half the usual rate. From that standpoint, it was good that we had a light night!
.
Yes, it was a good night. Even though we had three of our regular volunteers out, others stepped up to cover. I can always count on our great team…and on our great God!
.
Please pray for all our clients, and for our volunteers, some of whom are being tested by severe health issues, and for those who love them.
