Real Impact

Before coming to The Pantry, it was hard to find enough food. But, now that I can come regularly, I don’t have to rely on my friends and that makes me feel proud again. I feel so respected there.

– Ken W.

Having regular meals and making ends meet used to be really hard for me. That’s why Families Matter Food Pantry is like a gift from heaven. I’m so cared for now that I’m even able to share with my neighbor.

– Charles C.

Due financial issues, finding food was difficult. Thankfully, a volunteer at The Pantry invited me to come, introduced me to the friendly people there, and now I always have great quality food—even enough to share!

– John & Michelle G.

I can say without a doubt that life is much better now that I don’t have to worry about where I’m getting food from. It was hard before but The Pantry has made it easy. I love this place and the people who serve there.

As a Veteran caring for two kids and my mother-in-law, getting enough food was tough. The Pantry has helped so much. I love the food, the polite volunteers, and that I never feel judged. Thank you all!
