The Importance of Food Pantries
The food pantries directly address food insecurity in our community where food insecurity is a rising concern. Many of those who reside in our neighborhood experience significant obstacles due to language barriers, knowledge of social services as well as uncertainty of the receipt of these supports will affect their immigration status. With the added complication of the corona virus and an increase of people experiencing uncertainty in income, housing, and health, providing food will address at least one major concern.
The food provided by the food pantries support the overall well-being of the individuals receiving it. Enrollment is not based on income, immigration status or employment.
