It is with heavy hearts that we close our doors. After 9.5 years, we saw funding sources for our food pantry nearly dry up. One agency was offering no food grants for 2019, and the other could offer just $2,000, which is only a quarter of what it took to deliver what we had in 2018.
After prayerful consideration, the difficult decision was made to close the Montverde Food Pantry and redirect our clients to other local agencies that have other funding sources and larger staff.
