For those who have been asking: At this time, we plan on being OPEN 3-6 as per norm Tues and Wed. IT WILL BE VERY HOT! YES there will be a lot of people coming to get food! Please consider helping by 1. Coming and volunteering for an hour or 2. This will give the regular volunteers who have been here since 10am and unloaded 2 trucks a moment to take a break and try and cool off. 2. Bring cold drinks! 3. Be patient and kind. We know you are hot, gas is high, and you need food, but we have been there all day in the heat working hard. Kindness and patience go a long way and are much appreciated! ... See MoreSee Less

People’s Open Pantry has officially moved! Now at 1140 S Morton Street, we’re excited to continue offering shelf-stable foods as well as fresh local produce, meat, and more. Especially with our friends [@Pantry 279] being closed this weekend, we’re excited to invite anyone needing grocery support for the week to come by Saturdays between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., learn more about POP, and pick up some delicious food! ...

This Monday, June 27, I will be doing the Children's Summer food program from 4-6:30 at Williamsburg Plaza off Pete Ellis Dr . I'll have the pantry white van with a table of the food set up in the parking lot. This is the plaza behind KFC. You can get food at the pantry for the week AND bring your kids to get additional food for the week as well! Please remember to either bring children, or proof of them. Hope to see you there! ...

Gardening season is upon us! Normally at this time of the year, we are bursting at the seems with produce, but not this year. There are many reasons, our numbers are climbing again, stores just don't have it to give, shortages, etc... If you have any extra produce from your garden that you can't use, we would be THRILLED to take it and find it an excellent home. Produce is very expensive and the healthiest thing to eat! Several of our guests are on medical diets that require large amounts of fresh produce. People's Market sends us their extras every Saturday, and it is the ONLY produce we have for Saturday. Thank you People's market! We are at pantry normally Mon, Tues, Wed from 11-6 and Sat 11-4 to accept donations of fresh produce or perishables like eggs and meat ( also in short supply ). Of course we are closed July 2 and 4 for the holiday. Thank you and happy gardening! ... See MoreSee Less
