An Outline of Progress for our Community
- Small church or school-based pantries.
- Churches and schools are the perfect place to start and create short-term relief for families in need. This first goal can be accomplished quickly and efficiently with the help of Whitely faith leaders, residents, and school administration.
- A freestanding food pantry in its own building.
- Expanded hours and options.
- Will still require the ongoing support and help of church and community volunteers.
- At this stage we will likely work to establish local food gardens and orchards that can supply some fresh produce to the pantry. Church and community involvement will be essential.
- A combination freestanding grocery AND pantry.
- Will still provide free food for those in need.
- Will also have food and other items available for purchase with cash or timebanking hours.
- Room for sales by local crafters/bakers/growers and other vendors.
- Will help to create jobs for community members.
- Food education and training will be an essential part of this.
- Whitely Farmer’s Market.
