We're Ending Hunger-- Together, with you.

We're Ending Hunger-- Together, with you.
December 28, 2015 MOM News
As 2015 comes to an end, I think back to families who I have gotten to know through my work at the Food Pantry.  I think about people like Charles.

A single father, Charles was working hard and getting by. But then he lost his full-time job and the hours at his part-time job were cut. Charles fell behind on rent and he and his kids faced eviction.

Working with a MOM case worker, Charles was connected to the MOM Food Pantry to access fresh produce, meat and dairy for his family. He received MOM rent payment support and was referred by MOM to other needed community services.  During his time at the Food Pantry, he was always smiling and laughing with the volunteers.  Even though things seemed to have fallen apart, he now had hope for his and his family's future.

Today, Charles has a steady job and his situation is stabilized.  He wouldn't have made it to this point without you.

In 2015, MOM distributed 1.3 million pounds of food, thanks to overwhelming community support and partnerships from individuals, groups, churches, businesses, and families.  People who might have otherwise gone hungry had access to dairy, protein, fruit and fresh vegetables often grown in our very own Food Pantry gardens.

I saw firsthand how the generosity of our community ended hunger for Charles and his children, and helped feed and clothe so many more.  I can't thank you enough for your generosity and care.

Your donations help provide snacks for school-aged children who are often too hungry to do their homework, and teach people how to grow their own food in our innovative Food Pantry teaching garden. Your donations allow us to bring food to the elderly and people with disabilities through our Mobile Food Pantry. Your generosity ends hunger for real people.

Charles and his family thanks you.
