Greg came into our Ft Myers Food Pantry 2yrs ago for help with food when COVID 19 was rampant. He stated that his company had closed down and he was without work as a result. He then signed up for services and used the food pantry for about 10 months. After that time Greg stopped showing up to the food pantry and staff noticed he hadn’t been by for a while. Recently, Greg came back to the food pantry with a food donation for us and shared that if it were not for all the help he received from us during the time he was unemployed and struggling, he would not have been able to feed his family. He has since found a stable new job and is now doing well.

"This Food pantry is a God send. Thank you for all the help we have received." - Anonymous
