I am so very proud of how The Pantry spends every dollar that is donated. I understand that there are a lot of very worthy organizations to whom you could donate and I am thrilled when you choose ours!
In 2015, we were blessed with just over $8000 in cash donations and used that to feed 3168 people. We give each family enough food to feed every member of their household three meals a day for three days. That breaks down to only $0.87 per person per day!
This number even includes our overhead (BIG thanks to Table of Grace Church for helping us keep our housing cost so low!) Also, we couldn't be so successful at stretching your dollars without the approximately $2500 of food donations from The JC Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and countless individuals.
I can't wait to see what we can do together in 2016!!
