Charity Golf Fundraiser 2020
We would like to thank the 114 golfers (an all-time high!) who braved the damp weather to come out and show their support of the Food Pantry! It was a fun day and we raised much needed funds to continue to help supply healthy food for those in need in our community.
Thank you to our generous sponsors - we couldn't do this without your support!

An Incredible End to a Year of Incredible Generosity
The amazing generosity of the members of St. Peter Catholic Church continues........
The final food drive of the year netted an additional 3,200 lbs. and the total food donated for 2020 was an astounding 23,020 lbs.
An incredible "Ton a Month" of assorted food types donated to the Honey Brook Food Pantry.
The impact of providing more food to the increasing numbers in need, while helping us maximize our spending, has been tremendous.
We thank you on behalf of the hundreds of families we serve each month!
They Continue to Amaze Us!
1215 lbs of food collected by Cub Scouts Pack# 9 in Honey Brook! This is almost 100 lbs more than they collected last year. Way to go, kids! You continue to amaze us year after year with your hard work! We cannot thank you enough. This will help us to go a long way to provide food for those in need this upcoming holiday season.
We can't thank you enough!
On November 5th, Kemper Equipment held a golf outing and pledged a donation per participant. Afterwards, they sent this generous donation to the Pantry. We are so grateful! A large portion of this donation has been reserved specifically to provide adult gloves during this year's Coat and Gift distribution in December, which is often an overlooked but much needed item for the upcoming cold weather.
Thank you, Kemper Equipment!
Pantry News from the Board Chairman
As we conclude a tumultuous 2020 and reflect upon the impact of the Honey Brook Food Pantry, it is a perfect time to thank each and every one of you for any part you played in supporting our mission….serving local families in need while empowering them toward independence.
After the incredible need over the March-April time frame, the number of people we served stabilized through the summer and early fall, and with some additional government food programs, increased our food distribution by over 20%. Consistent with other trends around Covid-19, however, we have seen 1,235 people needing help over the past 30 days. With the expiration of many of those government programs, the next several weeks will present some additional challenges
Thanks to the work of our incomparable volunteer team, we have not missed one distribution date and actually added more remote distributions and served more emergency needs than ever before.
Despite doing everything outdoors, we have continued nearly all of our special programs including:
The Weekend Kids’ Back Pack Program has re-started and increasing weekly, now at 60 children
The Nutritional Supplement Program for Infant-Age 3 is still providing critical special foods, diapers,
supplies and important guidance to 58 families in need of this help for their youngest children
The expanded the “Garden for Life” program included two Community Gardens yielding hundreds of
pounds and 8 local gardeners who donated produce…..a number we hope to expand in the spring
Summer food boxes full of healthy items were provided bi-weekly to all 240 participating children
Our Employment Support Program (helping to achieve 40% independence) recently achieved two new
placements, and continues to seek job openings from interested local employers.
As United Way Agency of the Year and catalyst for the Mobile Home Tax Re-assessment Project, we
participated in a broader UWCC program yielding 530 successful appeals, saving nearly
This year’s holiday plans include the annual Turkey Dinner Distribution (12/19), a target of 650 new toys, three coat distributions with hats, gloves and scarves for kids and this year…. new winter gloves for adult men and women. Our December plans are aggressive but our community support is great!
The service area we serve may be small in relative terms, but the need has been especially great this year as we strive to maintain our high quality standards. Unfortunately that need continues into this Holiday Season.
Best wishes, Merry Christmas and a Happy 2021…..thank you once again for all you do!!
