Food Pantry to Receive $1,200 Grant

Last week we received the excellent news that Trinity’s Winger Food Pantry will be receiving a $1,200 grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health and the University of Missouri Interdisciplinary Center for Food Security. The grant is the result of Cathy Smith participating in a multi-week online series of grant-writing workshops and successful completion of bi-weekly “homework” assignments including filling out an actual grant application.

The money will be used by the Food Pantry to improve its efficiency, sustainability and client privacy by purchasing a laptop computer for exclusive use by the Pantry (we have been using a borrowed computer), a flat dolly-style wheeled cart for moving large and heavy donations from volunteers’ vehicles to the Pantry storage areas, and additional shelving for organizing and storing large donations that exceed the current space available for Pantry goods.

Celebrating diversity, working for justice, living with joy!
