Pantry News from the Board Chairman
Activities at the pantry continue at a fast pace as the summer months kick in. Although the flow of clients during our regular distributions has slowed markedly since the dramatic first quarter acceleration, we still served 4% more people than in June last year, resulting in so many text messages like these two….
Words cannot express how grateful we are for the food bank. It has enabled us to eat 3 meals a day. You do such a great job, thank you so much!
Your food bank has blessed my family beyond words. Because of it, my family is eating more vegetables and fruits and less ...well baked goods lol. Thank you for all you do and a big thank you to all the volunteers. Several new government benefit programs have enabled many families to achieve some level of food security without the benefit of our help. Many pantries in the county have seen reductions of up to 50% this quarter and this is certainly good news. It allows us to focus even more on the health and quality of our offering, enables us to meet emergencies within a day and to re-double our efforts to identify and help every family in need. We have also begun to engage our clients in the quest to increase the 1,725 unique families we have registered and served since inception.
During May and June, we surveyed over 100 (anonymous) families to assess satisfaction and unmet needs.
The overall satisfaction rate of 98% was certainly gratifying as were the 31% making positive “write-in” wonderful comments like: Pantry is Great….Thank you….So Grateful, Bless you….Very Appreciative, Service, Smooth, Well Organized, Needs always met, Love all the Volunteers
The great majority of families also presented significant medical issues including 42% with high blood pressure and 38% with diabetes and as many respondents requested adult incontinence products as did child diapers
Our Board of Directors’ recent strategy session fleshed out several plans to address menu selection
adjustments to focus even more on healthy menu options and other needs identified by our clients
With seed money donated in memory of one of our long-term volunteers, we are in the process of establishing an outdoor “WELLNESS TENT” staffed to provide blood pressure screenings, health education and numerous resources to help meet our clients’ needs at each distribution.
Regardless of what lies ahead….with our incomparable volunteers, supporters and friends, the Honey Brook Food Pantry is well prepared to do whatever is needed to address food insufficiency in the area. The community can be100% confident that we will be there each week with a great supply of healthy food whenever it is needed, especially in emergency situations.
