Does Caritas struggle with having enough resources? Or is the pantry well supplied? Where does the food come from?

Does Caritas struggle with having enough resources? Or is the pantry well supplied? Where does the food come from?

We make a point of keeping our pantry and kitchen well supplied but there are times when we have trouble sourcing some items.  Cooking oil is a good example of something that everyone needs and yet we can't always get enough at a reasonable price.  

We buy most of what we distribute either through the Food Bank or from restaurant suppliers or big box stores.  We also have a network of generous donors and sponsors who hold food drives and collect donations for us. 

Volunteers are another resource we need and we have a wonderful network of folks who spend from one to ten days per month helping us.
