When I moved to Belen I decided to volunteer with the pantry. I am very concerned with feeding those in need. I have been working for the pantry for 6 years and the pantry has grown considerably in that time. We feed around 400 families per mo. now and were doing about 30 when I firxt started working at the pantry. We are funded by donation by the community only. There are no paid people working for the pantry. I am very proud of the volunteers we have and the growth we have made since I started working there. The board has great ideas about growing and I hope to be there when they come to fruition.
If you want the best possible value in helping the poorest and neediest people in Valencia County, make a monthly donation to the Belen Area Food Pantry. They make your gifts go a long way.
BAFP provides excellent service and ministry to local families dealing with hunger. Families are treated with respect and dignity while BAFP gives them a helping hand.
