Mission Statement: Our mission is simple. Feed the hungry. You cannot begin any other growth without simple needs being met. We hope to offer extra support to meet these needs. We will give what we have. No one will ever be turned away. We want everyone to be treated with the same dignity and respect that we would ask for ourselves.
New fundraisers are in the works! Give-back nights, spaghetti supper, corporate matching. If you have any ideas, or are able to volunteer or be a shopper, please contact Nettie Silverman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items currently needed...Brownie and cake mix, soup, salad dressing, jelly, pasta, pasta sauce (this list will be updated monthly)
Did You Know?The name for this satellite pantry is derived from Henrietta (Hinka) Ann Dascanio. She was a long-standing member of St. Francis Church. She was married there and was an active member of the Ladies' Guild. Hinka was an accomplished cook and baker. She worked in the Head Start programs, school cafeterias, and private restaurants. One thing we will always remember about her is that she always offered food to guests and would always help people however she could. It is for that reason her name was chosen for this food pantry.
Carla's Pasta has pledged to donate pasta each month for our clients.
100+ Women Who Care have voted to support our efforts by writing $100 checks from each of its members!!! They will be visiting the pantry and delivering their donation!
