Found out about a different food pantry other than the one I usually go to and figured why not give it a try, it's closer to me than the other one. So I head on over to the "new" FP and I LOVE it! Not only are all the people there extremely friendly but they have it set up like a grocery store and you are given a cart to get what you need. There are limits to how much of each item you can take of course..They go according to your family size and have people in each section who tell you how much you can get. Best of all they give you perishables!

We got 5 cans of vegetables, 2 cans of fruit, 2 boxes of cereal, a 5lb package of Salens hot dogs, 2 bags of Tilapia fillets, two small bags of frozen mixed berries, 4 tomatoes, a bag or Salad, 2 loaves of bread, a box of corn bread mix, a sleeve of ritz crackers,  an angel food cake (gonna make berry sauce for it!), a box of donuts, a dozen bakery cupcakes, 2 pks hamburg rolls, 2 pk hot dog rolls, a loaf of french bread, one of Italian bread, 3 packages of Alfredo, and a loaf of  Asiago garlic parmesan pull apart bread.

SIL had brought over some chicken breasts that she didn't eat last night so we had chicken alfredo, corn, and the pull apart bread for dinner tonigh. It was soooo yummmy!

That is awesome!  And this is for free?  Sounds like you got some great meals for your family.

yep, it was free...you have to meet income guidlines for this food pantry and we are well below the income limit level. The best part is, we can go back every 2 weeks if needed. It is going to be such a blessing to our family!

 Aww....I'm SO happy you were able to get all of that!  I'm sure that takes a lot of worry off of your shoulders.  :)

I am so happy for you.  That is one less problem that you have to worry about.
