Food Pantry Sustaining - 2015 Amount Funded: $4,000.00
We continue with our crock pot program as in our previous grant request. Each month a new recipe is introduced and our clients are provided foods to prepare the recipe together with the choices of other foods they make. This is a very successful program. We continue to work with the UW nutritionist once a month to help our clients in food preparation and volunteers from Shalom take blood pressure of our clients on a monthly basis to help them stay healthy. Our Senior Citizens continue to use our pantry for food so they can afford their medications. We strive to help the School Social Worker as their program continues to bring homeless youth to shop for food to help the families they are assisting them in their plight to continue their education. We continue to prepare new foods for clients to taste as many have never been educated on the preparation of food. For example, squash.
As in previous years we continue to enhance food received from other sources making our selection healthy and nutritious for our clients. Providing foods such as milk, fresh fruit, eggs, and other essentials are important to have available for those in need. We encourage people to cook rather than to use processed foods which tend to be less healthy. By striving for healthier selections, albeit more expensive, we feel the need to provide these for our clients
