Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is open Mondays and Thursdays:  11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Community Harvest’s Farm Wagon is here on Wednesdays:  10:30 a.m.
 

Beginning April 30, 2018, we will be using other food pantries’ lottery system to avoid favoritism, long lines at opening time, and decreased waiting.

Using a lottery system means each family will receive half of a ticket with a number. The other half of the ticket will be put in a hat and randomly drawn to determine the order of service.
For example, if you walk to the door 5th in line and draw the 5th ticket, tear it in half and leave 1/2 in the pot and keep the other half in your pocket. If your number is drawn in spot #1, you are first served!

 

Project Help can buy food through Community Harvest Food Bank and other sources. This food can be purchased for about 19 cents per pound, so the one pound jar of peanut butter you purchase for a dollar and donate to Project Help could be purchased for 19 cents by Project Help at the Community Harvest Food Bank in Fort Wayne.

One dollar given to Project Help will buy more than five times the food the same dollar could buy at the grocery store to be donated to Project Help.

The next time your organization is considering a food drive for Project Help, why not consider a One Dollar Offering where everyone donates one dollar. Or, you could even challenge your group to give all the one dollar bills they have in their wallet or purse that day.

Project Help will gladly accept any food given.

Did you know that Project Help accepts meat, dairy and produce as a donation? We have large commercial refrigerators and freezers that can hold just about anything!

 

Thank you for your support and generosity!
