This was our set up two years ago. Packing bags socially distanced while our church building was closed. Delivering our backpacks to peoples doorsteps. Making bags to hand out to people from the church playground at our food pantry. That was crazy. But we never stopped and we’ve been flexible and made changes on the fly and took care of as many people as we could. Looking at this picture makes me so thankful for our volunteers who carried us through. And they are still going today. What a ride ❤️🍏#emergencyfood #foodislove #foodpantry #redbanknj #middletownnj #foodinsecurity #communitypartners #forourkids ...
