Challenge

Grant A Wish Food Program is providing food through our pantry to food insecure people who may not be getting government assistance for food. Our presence for over the last 13 years at our center, has made a difference by giving away food each month. We are feeding the elderly, the homeless, and low income families in general with our food program. We are limited with the amount of food we can purchase thereby restricting the amount of food we can give away to people in need.

Solution

When people lineup on Saturday to get a bag or box of food, we provide a variety of fresh produce, bread, meat products, and an assortment of dry/can goods. The food program helps feed families thereby eliminating hunger. When people have an alternative to get food in an emergency, our food program helps to solve their problem. When you know a place is open that you can go to to get a box or bag of food is a relief to you & your family knowing that they can at least eat.

Long-Term Impact

Having the opportunity to get a consistent supply of food each month within the broader community to those who need food, we are helping the community. If people have somewhere they can go to get a bag or box of food it is helpful.Over 300 households are helped each month and over 800 people are fed collectively. Keeping the food program operational is the key to continuing to be a resource.
