Hunger Doesn’t Take a Vacation

It’s summertime! As Melissa Mantz of the Bucks County Housing Group reminds us, lots of folks are enjoying hard-earned vacations—and that’s great—but hunger is not taking any vacation at the food pantries, including the food pantry in Doylestown that BuxMont members and friends support. “We get a little bump in the summer because kids are home all day. Families used to accessing school-based food programs now have to stretch food dollars even further,” said Kathy Schoepfer, Volunteer Coordinator at our Penndel Pantry. “And because it’s summer we see a drop in donations because donors are away. By August the shelves are pretty bare.”

We are encouraged to remember to donate through the sum- mer months. It does make a difference! Please see the list below for the items most needed at this time. The collection basket for the Doylestown Food Pantry is located under the Peace & Justice table. Contact Kate Bianchini at kbianchini@bchg.org for more information about the Doylestown Food Pantry.
