Pantry News from the Board Chairman
Our final distribution of December, 2022 finished a month like none previously with some 1,900 people served from nearly 600 family visits and 61 home deliveries!!--ending a year of unprecedented need. Each month during the second half of the year resulted in increases in service levels of 35%-40% and 130 new families were registered, more than seen in most full years.
Emergency services like those provided below were not uncommon during the past holiday season.
We were contacted on Christmas Eve by a local mother of two young girls who, for a number of reasons had not attended any of our December events and found herself with very little Christmas food and no gifts for her children.
On that morning she was provided a complete Ham Dinner and groceries for a week. She was also able to look among all the toys we retained on 12/21 for emergency use and found over a dozen nice items for the girls. At the same time, she selected virtually new coats for them and her, as all three were primarily using heavy sweatshirts.
Although food is our primary mission, those donated coats and toys were SO instrumental in making a better Christmas for this family, we could not be more appreciative...as she was.
Early 2023 results continue to trend higher despite the dramatic increase in need last year. Through 3/1, well over 1,900 individuals have been served, a 17% increase....with 26 new families registered.
A recent area of focus at the pantry has been adding to the number and type of resources offered on site during our food distributions. These resources have included dental health professionals and and legal services. Upcoming additions will include heating assistance, help with selection of Medicaid options and experts in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
Families seeking help at the pantry will also receive a bi-weekly supply of personal items in addition to the comprehensive food supply throughout 2023 and we will be providing a complete Ham Dinner and Easter Baskets on Wednesday April 5th to all registered families.
Since participation in our kids' programs have nearly tripled, our focus will be on food for kids throughout 2023.
Spring fund-raising activities will again include the annual March Madness donation competition through early April and the Honey Brook Food Pantry Annual Golf Outing will be held at the HB Country Club on Tuesday, October 10th. The information will be accessible on our website www.honeybrookfoodpantry.org. and Facebook page.
Regardless of what the balance of 2023 holds, supported by our fabulous donors, as we have for 10 years, we'll continue to do whatever is necessary to meet the hunger needs in the community.
