Did You Know?

  "Summertime is usually our busiest time for the food pantry- children that receive free/reduced lunch during the school year are eating at home all summer long, making it harder for their parents to purchase food with their tightly stretched budgets.  So far this summer, we have helped to feed 101 families (comprised of 403 individuals) in need in our community. Often our food pantry is very low on stock beginning mid-June, and also has little variety due to this increase in usage with which donations usually cannot keep pace.  This summer, thanks to the help of the Cut Out Hunger Club/Jenny & Maureen, the Blue Valley MSC food pantry has had a large variety of food and non-food items to provide to our neighbors in need, and our food pantry has stayed well stocked all summer long.  We are now just experiencing a shortage in supply/variety, and school starts back in less than a week. This is amazing, and I am so grateful and impressed with the difference  the Cut Out Hunger Club has made to those in need in our community."  -- Julie Marshall
