We are a non-profit Food Pantry and rely on donations and fundraisers to stock the pantry with food each month. 

 

Child hunger is a serious issue plaguing our nation. Almost 21 million children depend on free or reduced-price school meals during the school year. Summer is an especially challenging time because they may have limited access to nutritious food when schools are out. Nearly 1 in 4 children live in a household that is food insecure. Children in your community do not need to go hungry in the summer.

 

"ONE CHILD'S HUNGER AFFECT

US ALL.  A HUNGERY CHILD

CANNOT LEARN ON AN EMPTY

STOMACH.  EVEN SHORT PERIODS

OF UNDER-NUTRITION CAN AFFECT

A CHILD'S BEHAVIOR OR SOMETIMES

LENGTH OF LIFE." 

I can't believe its been five years since we opened the food pantry in Palmyra in August 2009! We have been serving over 100 families per month since we began. Thank you to L&M Bakery for the free donuts for the clients each month and the cake today! Thanks so much to all of the volunteers throughout the years! It wouldn't be possible without you.

 

                 

Saturday, May 10th is the 22nd annual Letter Carriers’ Food Drive, as postal workers across the country help “stamp out hunger.” Last year, letter carriers collected more than 74 million pounds of food. It’s easy to take part: just leave your non-perishable food donation in a bag near your mailbox, and your letter carrier will pick it up and make sure it gets to the FoodBank or one of our partner charities to help feed our neighbors in need
