Today was the final day of the Children's Summer Food Program 2022. The final numbers are 784 families across Monroe, Owen and Lawrence Counties used the program feeding 2,260 children! This is slightly double from last year. We and those families would like to send a deeply heartfelt Thank you to All of you who sent donations to purchase the kid's food, South Central REMC and Hoosier Hills Career Center for sponsoring this important program. Thank you to Hoosier Hills food bank for helping provide Juice Boxes, cereal, and a couple of other Child friendly food items we had requested. AND Most of all Felicia Nunn for organizing and running this program all summer while still working the Pantry 279,, And Errin Logsdon and family, and Bobby Overman for working Monday, Tues ( Spencer ) and most Saturdays handing out the children's food. Many friendships were made, many children received food thru out Bloomington, Ellettsville, Spencer, Bedford, Fayetteville, and Oolitic. We look forward to next summer! ... See MoreSee Less

Update on the van and little red car. First, thank you again Journey Baptist church for the loan of your van so we can continue the children's food program. We have turned in the footage of the guy who did the damage to the Ellettsville Police, they are working on cleaning it up. Most think it is someone who lives fairly close to the pantry. Insurance, is trying to work with us, but due to an error, wrong button pushed, something, we only had Liability on the Van. Long story on this fight. They have fixed that issue, BUT will they go ahead and pay?? IDK. But it doesn't seem as bad as we thought. We have an estimate from Cross Paint and Body for around $1400 for the van. The red car will need a new catalytic converter, but everything else looks ok. Not sure how much those cost, working on an estimate there. Our deductibles are $1000 per vehicles, so it might not even be worth filing a claim. Currently people have donated $850 and some change to help with the cost of these vehicles. A little bit more and it'll be good. Thank you every one who has donated, it's always humbling and comforting to know we have such amazing support! Donations can be made thru Paypal ( Pantry279@yahoo.com ) VENMO at ( @pantry279 Choose the one marked Cindy Chavez, the other is fake ), Snail mail to Pantry 279 P.O. BoX 312, Ellettsville, IN 47429 Donate button on our webpage pantry279.org. Or just bring it direct to us at the pantry. If we end up with extra, it will be used to purchase food, which we always need. Thank you so much everyone! Please Share ... See MoreSee Less

Its not a great pic, but here is who messed up the van and delivery car. Video being turned over to the Ellettsville Police Dept. Officer Anthony Bowlen. Any tips, please let them know. This guy was messing with the cars over 2 hours. He touched a lot of things, we are hoping the police will come and get finger prints. ... See MoreSee Less

I am so upset about this. Really low level right there!

Praying he is found, and pays dearly!

This is horrible. I depend on the pantry for food because I am on SS and some weeks I need a little help. I so appreciate you guys and hope he is caught.

This is absolutely horrible...why on earth would anyone do such a thing?

Time for a better security camera!

Are those cowboys boots?

Sorry to hear about this I'd I could make his face out I might know them But looks like your typical meth head . Don't want to work or get a job just wants your money
