Report cards are out! The Love Pantry gets another A+. This past 2013 Fall Semester, 68,439 food and 3,802 hygiene items were distributed through 69 school Love Pantry locations impacting the lives of 7,558 household members of which 5,235 were children.
The Love Pantry is removing hunger as a barrier to learning.
Below is a blurb from one of our parents receiving food from the Love Pantry before the holidays:
We are so thankful for the food provided to us. It was a great help as we began the new school year and settled into living in Orlando from Minnesota. While I have a steady job now and we no longer need the help, I cannot be anything but thankful for everyone who helped us during the transition. It was a challenging situation moving here and I am so grateful for the help when we needed it most.
