The Bishop Jean Williams Food Pantry incredible volunteers continue providing genuine care and nutritious food amidst COVID-19 crisis. Pantry distribution increased by over 300 families during the months of March and April bringing the number of families served on a weekly basis to over 600. (view video below)
Family food budgets are often the first to be cut, reducing both the amount of quality of food in many households and putting people in situations of food insecurity and hunger. In 2018, we made changes to the way pantry operates in order to accommodate the growing need. Families are now able to shop every week if desired in an effort to increase their ability to become economically stable.
