From the Director – July

First thing first,  I and all the volunteers at the Muskego Food Pantry wish everyone a safe and Happy 4th of July.

Now let’s get down to business.  Gardens are coming in.  All this rain has helped the plants and weeds.  We should have bumper crops this summer so please keep the food pantry in mind when you harvest your produce.  We will always take your left over produce.  Just call the pantry or e-mail us if the Thursday all day drop off doesn’t work for you or your produce.  Even if you don’t want to think about it back to school is right around the corner.   The Back Pack Coalition of Waukesha County (which we are a member of) is having a “Fill the Bus” fundraiser on August 2, 2014.  We will have a Lamers Bus parked at our Muskego Walmart from 9am until 2pm.  We will be handing out shopping lists for back to school needs for kids in Muskego.  Please stop on by and while purchasing school supplies for your own kids or grandkids please pick up a little something extra for the bus.  You can also support the Muskego Food Pantry by purchasing “Cash Coupon” cards when they come to your door.  There are great deals when you use your card and the purchase price goes to the pantry.  As always please keep us in mind when you do your weekly grocery shopping.  We have barrels located at Piggly Wiggly, Pick N Save and Walmart besides all around town.  Start bringing us your produce and everyone who volunteers and uses the pantry will have a great and healthy summer.  Thanks for your continued support.

Julie
