Monday was our last day with our National Guard. It was a long, hot, crazy summer, and they worked their butts off, and saved our backs! They became part of our Pantry 279 family, and we will miss them. Hopefully they will stop by to say Hi from time to time. Please join me in thanking Chris, Aaron, and Andrew for sticking with us during this pandemic and helping do many. Love you guys!!! ... See MoreSee Less
We found out about Gary a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be more sad. Gary and Gracie helped at the pantry A LOT. I've watch Gracie grow these last couple of years into such a sweet and loving girl. Gracie always has a place in the Pantry 279 family and her father will always be remembered. ... See MoreSee Less

Well it looks like this year the Thanksgiving Box program has to be a drive up, prepacked boxes made according to family size. I'm sad too, as I feel the coming in and picking had a more personal, family type feel, but on the bright side, drive up is faster, much less wait time and it is safer with this virus still on the rise. We are expecting around 2000 families this year with the damage COVID has caused to the economy. Click here to sign up for a box pantry279.org/thanksgiving/receive-a-meal

We are open and back to normal tomorrow ( Tues 9/8 ). I imagine Tues, wed and Sat will all be crazy busy. Honestly if the indicators from August are anything, I'm expecting it to be very busy the rest of the year. Please consider volunteering, even if it's just a couple of hours. The most needed times are from 1-6:30 Mon, Tues, Wed and Sat 11 - 5:30. Also, just driving by and taking cardboard out of our cardboard box and taking it to recycle is a huge help. Thank you!! ...
