Twin Valley High School Basketball Shoots Hoops for The Pantry

June 24, 2020

The Twin Valley High School Boys Basketball team set a goal for themselves - make 5000 jump-shots over a weekend to raise money for local food banks.  They not only met that goal but in the process they raised $1250 that they donated to the Honey Brook Food Pantry.  After the players met with board chairman Ken Ross and heard a little about how this money so greatly helps the pantry find fresh meat and produce, they presented the check.  We are so grateful to have young men like these who "shoot" for a goal and score for the home team - their community.  Great job, Twin Valley High School Basketball!

A Much Needed Service from Eagle Disposal!

June 11, 2020

Eagle Disposal has graciously donated their recycling service free of charge to the Honey Brook Food Pantry.  We go through so many boxes, plastics, and other recyclable items at every distribution. This is an amazing service to assist us in lowering costs in order to provide more food to families.  Thank you, Eagle Disposal!

Record-Breaker!

May 28, 2020

2,790 lbs... Unbelievable!! This record-breaking food collection from St. Peter Catholic Church came to us in late May. We are amazed and so, so thankful to the parishioners at St. Peter's for their continued generosity!!  We didn't think it was possible to top their last food drive donation, but they did it!  

From the Rotary Club of Thorndale...So Generous!

May 27, 2020

We received a visit from the Rotary Club of Thorndale. They stopped by to present us with a very generous donation and we were able to snap this picture of the team! We are so grateful - this will go a long way to help us with the next distribution coming up June.

An Amazing Food Drive!

May 20, 2020

Thank you, Crop's Fresh Marketplace for the incredible food drive!  They had 97 of these individual bags by noon on May 20th.  Such a HUGE help to our clients for the upcoming distribution during this time when resources have been stretched further than ever before. 

Finally able to get that new freezer thanks to PHL COVID-19 Fund

May 07, 2020

We're honored to share that the Honey Brook Food Pantry has received a PHL COVID-19 Fund grant.  A collaboration between the Philadelphia Foundation and United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, the PHL COVID-19 Fund is providing financial assistance to nonprofits like ours during the Corona Virus crisis.
 

It is because of this grant that we were able to purchase a new freezer to keep on location at the pantry.  The past months have been difficult trying to find borrowed freezer space around the community, as well as, trying to get the food stored in that space back to the pantry at distribution time (while trying to keep it cold!).  We are so grateful to receive this grant so we can better serve those in need! 

Thank you, Twin Valley Lacrosse!

April 22, 2020

The Twin Valley Lacrosse team generously donated all of their remaining snacks and drinks to the Food Pantry, just in time for the late April distribution.  Thank you to TV Lax for their generous donation!  It was a huge and much needed addition to this distribution!

How things look right now

April 10, 2020

Since March 25th, the HBFP has served 303 families through an outdoor, socially distant delivery model.  The need is unprecedented and shows no sign of abating any time soon, nor does the ability to source and store the amount of food necessary.

 

During the first distribution since the crisis began, we served 508 people, which was was 46% above our average this year and the largest single distribution ever.  Over the past three weeks, a total of 945 individuals were served....a 39% increase above the average or normal .....and our two largest attended openings since inception in 2014.

 

Community support has been equally overwhelming.....local grocers like Walmart, BBs Grocery Outlet and Crop's Marketplace have stepped up as have dozens of organizations, churches and individuals in their own ways.  Your help is so appreciated.

A Record-Breaking Donation!

March 30, 2020

You can't see all the way to the back of this trailer but Saint Peter Catholic Church topped themselves this week with a donation of food that filled four large bins!  This was so greatly needed.  We cannot thank the parishioners of Saint Peters enough!

Our first ever drive-thru distribution

March 25, 2020

March 25, 2020 marked our first ever drive-through distribution.  Luckily it went pretty smooth, with all clients remaining in their vehicles while volunteers placed the food items in the cars for them.  All social distancing rules obeyed despite the high turn out.  During the first hour and twenty minutes, we saw the first 75 cars. This was the most people we have seen ever....with 156 families (16 new and another 23 we had not seen this year so far).
