Food Pantry for Woodford County hopes to raise $10,000
Food Pantry for Woodford County (FPWC) opened in 1992 with the mission of serving the hungry in our area. In the last 26 years, they’ve continued to add programs to cater to the growing community. Unfortunately, the needs of the Woodford County residents are still growing, so FPWC is raising money through RedBasket.org to purchase more food.
Open two days a week, residents needing food assistance can visit the client-choice food pantry and select food items. FPWC not only provides non-perishable food items, but they also encourage healthy living by offering fresh foods like meats, fruits, and vegetables.
“We help clients provide nutritious meals for their families, enabling them to use precious resources for other obligations such as rent, utilities, transportation, medicine, and other life necessities,” said Sharon Hardin, FPWC Executive Director.
To ensure the food pantry is always stocked and available for clients, FPWC volunteers hope to raise $10,000 to purchase meats and other nutritious food items. They’ve created an online fundraiser through RedBasket.org, a fee-free fundraising website, to raise the needed money.
“Our wish is for all of our clients to receive help and become self-sufficient,” Sharon said. “We celebrate each success with our clients when they turn their lives around, and they no longer need help from the food pantry.”
This fundraiser will be online through March 16. To learn more or to make a tax-deductible donation, please visit https://redbasket.org/1588/food-pantry-for-woodford-county.
