How you help While it’s easy to get caught up in a hectic, overly scheduled life, volunteering can actually make you feel like you have more time! According to Feeding America, there was a surprising finding by the Harvard Business Review that stated giving your time to a community cause actually makes you feel like you have more of it. We feel that volunteering enables you to give back to others while nurturing your soul. Volunteering is also a great way to spend time with your family, neighbors or community organization.
About us The Pantry opened its doors at Grace Episcopal Church on May 6, 1989 serving six clients. Since that time, the pantry has served over 2,500 families. ​ The pantry Board of Directors is comprised of elected officers, appointed members, and representatives from each of the participating churches and synagogue.
