Many families are working at low paying jobs, they might have an unexpected emergency arise during the month or an illness occurs...for families without health benefits that can wipe out an entire month's income!
Matthew 25 provides a safety net for our community. Because of the recession more people are relying on food pantries than in recent times - including more and more "middle class" people.
Matthew 25 provides a three-five day supply of food to families and a one day emergency supply where needed. We share our love with members of the community with people who are less fortunate and who need a helping hand during these times.
The Matthew 25 Food Pantry is not subsidized by any government program, but as an agency partner with the Northeast Regional Food Bank in Latham, we are able to purchase discounted food each month.
We are so grateful for the food drives and the charitable donations which frequently appear at just the right time to help meet our needs.
There are no paid staff and all charitable donations help in meeting the expenses of providing for food, clothing, personal hygiene and household goods. Without your help, we couldn't help others. Thank you.
