My association with the St. James Food Pantry began in 2005 when I was asked to serve on its Social Care Board. From the beginning, I was impressed with the dedication, efficiency, and service the pantry staff and volunteers give to the clients who are hungry, homeless and in need. One of the biggest challenges the pantry faces is securing the resources required to address the needs of the people it serves. This mission must continue because those who are fed today, like you and I, will need to eat again tomorrow.
