There is no school tomorrow (1/20). Will you need volunteers tomorrow and if so, what time would kids be able to help?

Hope you get feeling better soon. God bless you and the volunteers for what you do for the committee.

Praying you feel better soon.

Big Hugs and PRAYERS you feel better dear friend !!!!!!

2020 is here! And with it we need sponsors. Once a month we rent a 20 ft truck to go to Indy to pick up around $20,000 in "free" food. This is a VERY important trip and runs about $250. If your organization or Business could sponsor this trip 1 or more months, please PM That would be amazing! We also need a sponsor for our Pantry trailer plate renewal, which is $80. We are currently around $7000 behind in our shared maintenance fees. Once everything is counted, it works out to about $1 to feed 1 person per month. How many can you help feed? Finally, we started the year with our large chest freezer dying and then a week later our commercial fridge needing repair. Any help with the repair or new/donated chest freezer would be wonderful! Thank you all for making it possible to help so many every month! ... See MoreSee Less

I'm a little disturbed by the amount of food waste people don't think about. For example, I just saw about 20 packets of ketchup tossed. If you dont want or use all of your packets of whatever, gather them up and bring them to the pantry. We will group them in bags and give them to people who will happily use them. ...

I know! Restaurants hand these things out like water to make sure you have enough, and many get deliveries with packets of all kinds of things. You cant return them and they get pitched. Our people would love these little things!

I don't waste food my Gracey loves ketchup so I save it all but I've see pepole through out stuff that other pepole could use an I don't under stand there's homeless pepole that would love stuff like that

Taco Bell always gives us tons of extra taco sauce too! I will start saving all my fast food condiments for the pantry!!!

My grandma has always had an extra butter tub or something chock full of condiments from fast food restaurants so it caught on. We have always had one in our fridge as well. Saved quite a few sandwiches and tacos 😉

Great idea! I never thought to do this!!! Thanks I will start saving them!!!

Oh good! I got a bunch from a jimmy johns catering order. Mustard and mayo!

One of my goals for this year is to be more mindful of leftovers

Good to know really never thought about taking this to a pantry or food bank.

Yea I got brain injury but I won’t or hate to waste n eat before I wake up or then there people that hungry I just can’t do it!

Waste not want not is my motto too

Congratulations to Pastor Alan Scott who was installed as the permanent pastor at Trinity today. Which means he's with us at the Pantry too. I don't know if the congrats are more to us or him! I can't be more pleased that he chose to stay here in our little corner of the world! ... See MoreSee Less

There is a lot of worry in the world at the moment. Fires in Australia and the Middle East mess to just name a couple. Breathe.....remember to love your family, friends, and community. Try and do something everyday for yourself and for another. Even small things make a difference. Smile at a stranger, pick something up for someone when they drop it, volunteer someplace, give someone a hug or encouraging word, just because. It will make you feel better and could mean the world to them. ... See MoreSee Less

What is the age requirements for volunteering? I have a couple girls ( 11 & 8) that are no longer in GS but would still like to do some volunteer work. (The older one has volunteered with y'all before when she was in GS)

I'll be there after work, only got about an hour though. Gotta run to Frankfort, Indiana tomorrow

I wish I could volunteer 🙁 Don't think you guys want me carting along my toddler 😅

coming at twelve
