“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
These are words to live by. Our goal at WFCM is to embody this message in everything we do and to the best of our ability. That is why our food pantry is at the core of our mission. We are a “choice model” pantry which empowers our clients. Our clients can come into our food pantry and “shop” as they would at a grocery store by picking their own selections from the shelves. We do everything we can to continually stock all the items that would make a fully nutritious meal. These items include non-perishable items such as canned goods, breads’ produce, meat, and dairy products. In addition to food items we also carry baby-specific items such as diapers and baby food for those who have infants.
All of these items are donated by amazingly generous people like you and in response to events we hold throughout the year.
We know that food can be one of the most expensive items on a household budget list. Our hope is that in allowing our clients to visit once per month they will save enough money to pay for other expenses such as rent or utility bills.
We are extremely grateful for the support of each and every person that makes a contribution to our pantry and we are especially grateful to organizations such as the Sully District Boy Scouts, our ministry partner churches, area schools and community residents.
Special thanks are also in order for the amazing organizations that donate perishable goods and produce to our food pantry:
