THANK YOU…Mt. View Electric

A big thank you to Mt. View Electric for this Round-Up grant.  This grant will help in providing emergency food for the many families that are in need.


BECOME A VOLUNTEER

This past month, the Pantry served over 1142 people and volunteers donated over 890 hours.  We have 22 volunteers that regularly donate their time. If you or you know of someone who would love to volunteer, just drop by the pantry to let us know or call us 719-347-3062.  We are in need for help in the clothing department to sort for the fall and winter season.

  Congratulations! Thank you to all our volunteers for your many hours of service to make our pantry such a valuable resource for our community. (Click here to read more and see all previous honorees.)  

Volunteers are the key to the success of the Eastern Plains Community Pantry (EPCP).  You can make that real difference in helping serve the people of our community.


THANK YOU..

The Pantry Board thanks to all those wonderful people and organizations that have contributed to the operation of the Pantry. Your donations are a blessing to our community.

The donations for emergency food have been great from Wal-Mart, Loaf and Jug, Mountain Springs Church, Costco and the Manna Pantry but funding is needed to fill in the gaps when providing emergency boxes. A variety of foods are needed and not all donations come in well rounded nutritious portions.


Donations……

The pantry is in need of the following:

  • clothing for Newborn to 24 month old children (high need)
  • fall clothing,
  • mens’ shirts
  • mens’ pants
  • jeans all sizes
  • sweaters
  • jackets  and coats for adults and children
  • blankets and bedding
  • pots and pans
  • small children toys  

Our pantry is looking for a portable air conditioner to be used in the back supply room and a used refrigerated van or small truck for help in getting food supplies to the pantry.

If you might have those items and would like to donate them, please drop them off during our business hours at the pantry.


September  is “National Potato Month”, “National Chicken Month”, “National Rice Month” and “National Baby Safety Month”.

Calhan Summer Fest – A Success

Our booth in the Calhan Summer Fest (7/13/18) was again a success. We served a pulled pork dinner as a fundraiser for the Pantry. The price was $9.00 for the full dinner (pulled pork sandwich, potato salad, baked beans, dessert and a drink).

Thank you to all who came and supported our booth.
