Outstanding Generosity!

July 20, 2020

Last summer we started a community garden with two raised beds for vegetables at the Honey Brook Borough Park. Our garden is next to the fence separating the park from Dave Eames’ yard and The Labs Funeral Home. As there was no close access to water for the garden, food pantry volunteers would make several trips up the hill everyday carrying heavy containers of water to keep the plants growing. Dave came to our rescue this summer by installing a spigot and a hose on his property and offering us the use of it as we need. Thank you Dave! Your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated by our community and by the volunteers who no longer have to struggle up that hill carrying water!

Honey Brook Food Pantry Gardens

July 17, 2020

As part of the Honey Brook Food Pantry’s effort to help provide food security to our community we started the Garden For Life Program a few years ago. Our home gardening program supplies gardeners with plant seedlings, seeds, soil, containers and advice to grow some of their own produce at home. We also have two community gardens, one at the Honey Brook Borough Park and the other at the Honey Brook Township Office. While we like to offer as much of the produce that is grown in the community gardens on food pantry distribution days twice a month as we can, we are also offering produce to everyone in our community. Please stop by to check out our gardens and help yourselves to some healthy produce while you’re there!

A Persevering Donor

July 10, 2020

A special thanks to the gentleman running an ongoing yard sale to benefit the Food Pantry.  Located at 120 Telegraph Road, the sale has persevered through rain, wind, and other misgivings to try to raise money for a good cause.  We are very grateful for the donations and wish you all the best in your continued efforts!  Kindness like this goes a long way and is what keeps the Food Pantry running.

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!
