Here are some real success stories from families right here in our communities:

“My husband and I are in our 70’s and live on a very tight fixed income.  I have cancer and my husband sometimes goes without food to make sure I have what I need.  The Mount Vernon Food Pantry has helped us out so many times, I can’t even count.  They are always friendly and quick to respond to my emails.  Thanks you for all your help!”

“Our family is a blended one, together my husband and I have 6 children.  I stay home with our children and my husband works 2 jobs to just keep the bills paid.  Some months we are ok but more times than not we run out of food.  The Mount Vernon Food Pantry has really been understanding and helpful.  I never feel like they look down on us and are always very friendly.  If it wasn’t for them, my babies would go without food.  The shopping layout is wonderful because my kids are picky eaters so I can pick out food they all like.  God bless the volunteers of the Mount Vernon Food Pantry.”

“A year ago, I found myself without food to eat.  I am on disability and all the money I had went to bills and rent. A friend told me about the Mount Vernon Food Pantry.  I was nervous at first to come but the nice ladies who worked there helped me feel at home.  I will never forget the experience.  Now, I have more money coming in so each week I take some food up to the Pantry to give back.  I know I won’t be able to repay the kindness shown to me but I want to pay forward if I can. Thanks!”
