A Year In Review

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone to say the least. Food for Thought had to quickly pivot to a drive-thru type mobile pantry, and rethink our staple PB&J program so we could continue to serve our community without missing a beat. It takes donors, volunteers, farmers, and community partners to create this amazing place where everyone belongs and economic status does not isolate anyone from connecting to those around them. Thanks to the exceptional generosity of our supporters this year, Food for Thought has continued to provide that community for those in need and serve everyone we encounter with dignity and respect. Thank You!
