The Plymouth Community Food Pantry would like to thank all of those who have been so kind to our mission over the past 6 months. The Covid-19 Pandemic has affected everyone in one way or the other. Yet, individuals, businesses, and civic organizations have shown their spirit of giving. Monetary donations and food donations, along with a strong Board of Directors and committed volunteers, have enabled the Pantry to have one of the most productive summers ever. Shelves are well stocked, and refrigerators and freezers are full. Clients are continuously expressing their appreciation for healthy and nutritious offerings they receive upon each visit. No matter how small or large your contribution, you have made a difference. In the words of Mother Teresa, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”
