I just wanted to take a moment to say a “Big Thank You” to the citizens, organizations, businesses, schools, gardeners and partners of the Bureau County Food Pantry for your donations of food and financial support during 2013.
The Bureau County Food Pantry could not complete its important work without you. Through your generous support, the food pantry was able to provide emergency food to 1,880 households with 4,769 individuals served in 10 communities of Bureau County. This is an increase of 532 households from 2012.
In the current economy, many of our families continue to struggle to make ends meet. We will continue to meet the food needs of our communities and look forward to your continued support.
