Funding is a nonstop business.  It requires actively engaging people in the work of serving others not just with their checkbooks but with their time and involvement.  We are blessed to have a growing network of individuals who want to make a difference and they make it work.  All pantries face the same financial difficulties but it takes more than handing out food to make a pantry or kitchen work.  It takes love and care.  If you bring the right people together with the right attitude and desire to help, the money and support will follow.
