We reside in the wonderful community of Wakefieldthat has never failed to provide the pantry with food and donations allowing us to serve those in need among us. Since 1982 this community has supported the pantry through food drives, community events and donations. Though it is bittersweet that we have been in existence for 30 years, it is heartwarming that we have always been able to help those in needs for that time period.
We are thankful for the many people who donate to the pantry through food or money. Our average donation is approximately $50 and we process over 16,000 lbs of food each month. This would not be possible without our individual donors and without the help of organizations such as Keurig, Shaws, Gathering Change and the Rotary.
Finally, we are so thankful for the wonderful volunteers that donate their time and energy to the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry. These volunteers fulfill the many tasks necessary to feed our neighbors and they do it joyfully, compassionately and without judgment. Through it’s volunteers, the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry strives to provide a warm and welcoming environment to all who come through the door.
As Director, I appreciate all of you who make the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry a success. As Desmond Tutu said, “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
