Jan. Angel Food Distribution goes well!

Our volunteers rise to the occasion again!

Overseen by Gwen, it was all hands on deck for this month's Angel Food distribution. Mike and the his sons did another great job with the truck! (I'm telling you these guys are powerhouses!) Bill, Michele, Jonathan and Deborah all pitched in to sort and pack the food boxes. We had kids helping both through Restorative Justice and as teen volunteers.

Many thanks to the anonymous person who donated lunch. You ensured that no one who came to us to help went home hungry. Many of the kids who come to us to serve court-ordered hours come from difficult home lives. We always try to feed the kids something before sending them home. Your donated lunch helped us help them. Thank you.

Kudos also go to the people who sponsored Angel Food boxes this month! These boxes are now $30.00. Food stamps are accepted. The problem is we are seeing more people who are caught between affording food and being eligible for food stamps. For January, 17% of the food boxes we gave out were sponsored boxes.

Thank you for helping us help others!
