Big thanks to our partner St. Philip Episcopal Church! Thanks to their support, we raised over 2,885 lunches where 1/3 of the proceeds will go to St. Philip’s food pantry so that their staff can continue to serve the community.
Same as last year, the money will go toward providing food resources including that of canned goods and fresh produce, making it possible to absorb the excess needs the organization receives around this time of year. By putting these funds to good use, the food pantry can meet their overall goal of being able to serve anyone who comes in for food by making sure they’re able to leave with the food they need.
The food pantry is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays noon to two where an average of six to eight volunteers work to give back.
E.E. Ward agrees that the best part of Laps for Lunches is seeing the effects of where the funds go and the difference it makes in the Woodland Park community!
