STROUDSBURG WESLEYAN SENDS A BIG THANK YOU to the DEP and all who made it possible for this exciting news for our food pantry!! We have been given a grant for equipment only. With this grant, we will be able to purchase a refrigerated box truck, more refrigerator and freezer space, and the tools needed to give away larger quantities of food. This will greatly enhance our ability to give families healthier foods such as fresh produce and meats. We will also be able to purchase new equipment to prepare food for community meals. We are incredibly thankful to so many who have partnered with us [Pocono Pro-Foods, Shop-Rite, Giant, Wal-Mart, Salvation Army, Christian Life Assembly, Weis, Target, BJs, Earthlight, and others] and many, many individuals. This grant is not for food or expenses, so your donations will help us to fill those new storage spaces with lots of food to give away. Together we help bring hope to families in Monroe County! We are so grateful that we live in a community where we can work together in unity to express God’s love to those in a season of need.
