Whether it be donating food items, raising money or volunteering manpower, representatives from God’s Storehouse in Wapakoneta say the need is great, and they need more help.
“We have so many people coming. We’re really just chewing through our resources,” God’s Storehouse Chair Carol Berg said. “We spend well over $1,000 every week on groceries.”
As a food pantry, God’s Storehouse serves clients throughout the Wapakoneta School District and beyond, providing food and clothing for families in need. The pantry provides for about 12-20 families each day, three days a week. Berg said that number continues to grow.
Most clients come to God’s Storehouse to receive the majority of their food supply, Berg said. The amount of food given to each client is based on family size.
“They can shop off the shelf and get what they prefer — some things are limited, of course, like sugar and cooking oil, coffee,” Berg said. “Then we total it up until they meet their quota.”
