Summary Of GNFP
The Good Neighbor Food Pantry of Woodstock strives to alleviate hunger in our area! Our clients choose from a Variety of foods, a 3 day supply of healthy, fresh food. They are families, seniors, children, individuals, the physically challenged and the mentally handicapped. Our clientele come from Woodstock and neighboring communities.
The pantry has an open to the public policy including all populations without regard to race, gender, ethnicity, age, color, nationality, marital status, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, income, disability, health status, unemployment, underemployment, or homelessness! Our doors are open to all who come.
The GNFP of Woodstock is an all volunteer pantry. Our volunteers come out and work tirelessly to accomplish our mission. We deliver food to the homebound in our community. Our coordinator, Judy Fox, makes it possible for people to get food in emergency situations.
Our host church, The Woodstock Reformed Church, helps us with this task by providing space and a variety of other support tasks. We would not be able to provide as well as we do without their support. For this we are truly grateful.
Please Help Us To Feed the Hungry as the need is mounting and our hallways are full and our lines are getting longer an our need for additional funds and supplies is greater than ever. Every week approximately 500 people are served, and it is getting more difficult to fill the pantry with food.
We encourage you to join us in this ongoing challenge and donate whatever you can to help us with our daunting task to alleviate hunger as we know it.
