Why it Matters

1 in 6 adults in Nebraska reported not having enough money to buy food.

Mr. and Mrs. Joe Smith (name changed for publication) came to us for a pantry. Mr. Smith had just lost his job. They were amazed at the amount of food, especially the fresh fruits and vegetables, they received. They were so extremely grateful for our assistance. Mr. Smith said as soon as he gets back on his feet, he will find a way to give back to the pantry. We at Salem Food Pantry are so grateful for our partnership with Saving Grace. You help us to serve the food insecure with nutritious fruits and vegetables, and sometimes with much-needed dairy items.
