Feed My People With Dignity

Raised by 4 people in 1 month
The Calvary Episcopal Church Food Pantry in Fletcher NC provides food for approximately 110-120 families a week.  We have special fundraisers to provide Turkey and Ham for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We also provide school supplies for children at the beginning of the school year. The Food Pantry needs have outgrown the available space. We need a new building and new equipment to continue to bless the lives of people who walk through our doors.

 

A Brief History of the Calvary Episcopal Church Food Pantry:

The story of our Food Pantry is a simple one. Calvary parishioners realized there was a serious need for food for people who had little. In 2009 the parishioners of Calvary banded together in a small room in the back of the church and served 5 clients.

Because of the need in the Fletcher region, services exploded and the Food Pantry became its own IRS approved charity in 2011. Church members of nearby Lutheran Church Nativity and First United Methodist Church of Fletcher heard about the ministry and joined in as partners. Today over 200 volunteers serve  110   – 120 families each week. There are no paid staff members.

Since 2011 the Food Pantry has provided food for 7,962 individuals from 2,522 families. Normally we give a family approximately half of its meal on a given week. We have given out 1,150,000 meals from 2011 through 2017. Each family gets a shopping cart and has numerous choices, as much like a grocery store as we can make it.

From the beginning clients were treated with dignity and respect. A volunteer accompanies each family and many become close friends.  There is no religious requirement for participation, but there is private prayer for those who request it.

Our goal is to attack food insufficiency and to do the work we feel called to do. The need increases and we need to do more.
