Serving West Orange: Pantry Renovation
Updated: Aug 2
Emergency food is one of the top needs for clients visiting our West Orange campus at 300 West Franklin Street in Ocoee. As families and individuals struggle to make ends meet, they often must make the tough choice of where they will spend their last dollar. Our food pantry assists by providing shelf stable food, produce, meat and bread to anyone in need. Last month, we served over 176 people, including 115 children, and the need continues to grow.
To help us better serve the West Orange community, our food pantry is being renovated to allow for more storage and enhance the client’s experience by giving them a choice in which food products they need for their household. In addition, the American Heart Association has generously purchased a refrigerator and freezer to hold more fresh products within the pantry. Nutritional guides, recipe cards and other information regarding healthy eating will also be provided.
If you would like to support this effort, food donations are accepted Monday-Friday, 9:00am-1:00pm and volunteers are always welcome. Contact Kristen Pena at email@example.com to learn how you can get involved.
