i was on hand for the very first day of the Prodisee Pantry. We were started by a local United Methodist Church in 2003 and have become a multi-church, multi-community non-profit organization (2005) providing emergency food boxes to families in Baldwin County, Alabama. It has been a real blessing to see what caring community individuals can do when all faiths and all walks of life come together to serve their communities. Last year we served about 12,000 families with staple food boxes including fresh produce and bakery items either donated by individuals, corporate entities or purchased from our Area Food Bank. About 20,000 volunteer hours were logged by community members to achieve this amazing feat. The pantry has one full time and one part time employee. Last year we were able to purchase, renovate and move into a larger facility which has enabled us to carry on our ministry of providing HOPE to our less fortunate brothers and sisters in our county. I have been so blessed to be a tiny part of this ministry and humbled to realize that hunger is so real and so near to all of us if we will just open our eyes.
