Local grocers often have an oversupply of fresh produce that would otherwise go to waste. New Seasons and Whole Foods donate much of this wonderful supply of food so that we can use them at Esther's Pantry and the other food programs in our residential facilities. We are very appreciative of the generosity of these wonderful people. This summer, we have received thousands of pounds of food that we were able to distribute to needy families that welcomed the amazing variety of food.
Our Community gardens are also producing an abundant crop that have been used in the kitchens. The residents have been working hard and have seen their efforts grow, bloom and produce throughout the summer. It has been a very rewarding experience for them and they are very proud of their efforts.
