Our organization is in dire need of a building with a refrigeration system to provide emergency assistance outside of scheduled distribution dates and to provide food to these hungry families without overlooking our clients’ vulnerability to nutritionally related diseases.
In order to reach this population’s health goals, we must have a building with a refrigeration system that will allow us to provide more fresh produce and lean proteins that accompany the non-perishable foods already provided. Realistically, clients’ needs arise outside of our scheduled distribution dates.
With enhanced storage and refrigeration capabilities, clients could be provided fresh and healthy food when their individual needs arise. Although we are making a huge impact on the community, the need continues to rise, exceeding our current capabilities.
Lastly, to maximize our efficiency, we are in need of a new forklift and a small box truck with lifting capabilities. We believe that with these upgrades, we will increase our impact on the community and evolve from being a mobile pantry to a full food distribution center. We truly believe that God is calling us to grow to meet the increased need, but we also know that we can’t do it alone, we need your help.
