    I agree coming early is not to get food first but to mingle and enjoy the companionship of others. I know if you come towards the end you might not get a share unless someone gives up an extra one. I have done so gladly on more than one occasion. The people working are volunteers and to have everything set up to grab and go would mean they have to come even earlier. They have a life and families that they would like to spend time with also. I appreciate all Ruby’s does for the communities they come and distribute to.

    Ruby’s Pantry has allowed me to feed my large family healthy “real” food at a fraction of the cost of grocery stores. The blessing of such abundance and the fellowship of fellow Christians working at the distribution points are such a wonderful thing in our lives. Knowing all this food is being used and not going to waste is also a joyful thing.

    My son and his wife shared some of their foods with us and it was a blessing. All that we have eaten has been delicious food. I especially loved the organic instant oatmeal. It is just the right amount and it stays with me. I am not hungry again in 2 hrs like with all the other cereals I’ve eaten. It’s quite tasty. Also loved the hash browns. We decided with all the food they got we could have an all church breakfast before service. It was GREAT!!

    I first attended the food pantry today with a neighbor. I was amazed at the amount of food available. I took what I needed and was very happy to get it. I retired a few years ago and am on a limited budget. I broke my leg recently and have some huge medical bills. The food I received really helped my wife and me out. We also share with our church some of the deserts, and baking cupcakes or cakes or whatever we can do for them. In our church they have social hour after service in which many elderly people have the chance to enjoy some of these items you have provided. They otherwise do not get out and socialize. I made a monetary donation as asked, plus a little more, and was glad to do it. Thanks you all so much for what you do to make this available to the community.

    I’ve been enjoying the opportunity to obtain and share the food I receive from Ruby’s Pantry. As a single person, I really could never consume all that is available, but find it wonderful to be able to share the food with others in my family and people who either cannot go to the pantry themselves. I’ve met a lot of nice people while waiting. And also see how important this service is to some of the patrons due to their limited incomes, single parents, or dual parents who may have a disability that inhibits their employment or living on minimum wage with children as well. I cannot help but think how expensive this time of year is for those parents who must now try to obtain school supplies that run in at least $75 – $150 depending on the grade. Surely being able to save on their grocery bill has been a real Blessing for them… I’ve even been willing to give a young mom some extra cereal, etc from my share before I leave the premises. Thanks so much to those of you who volunteer, and to the pastor of Good Shepherd who is so welcoming and so compassionate to all those who attend… Blessings to all of you…

    First timers here today. Took daughter who recently left to go to college and needs all the help she can get. We do what we can but this was the perfect opportunity to show her some options and give her a valuable lesson in giving thanks, appreciation and how to stretch the dollar. She was amazed at all the wonderful items she got and is excited to learn to cook something with the more unusual items. (unusual to her anyway) Frozen pizza–yeah! but now lets show you how to create something with the other fun items.

    We are amazed at how much food we have received and it has been a blessing. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have one child that ended up homeless and we are doing our best to help. Starting over is difficult and this helps him stay on his feet once again. Also another child is struggling with student loans and can now eat other things instead of “ramen.” I found recipes to use so the food lasts longer and does not go wasted and some can be frozen for later.

    I also found that the volunteers are incredible. They make you feel right at home and are very helpful.

    Sometimes, when we can afford to, we get 2 shares so we can split with some family members who can’t afford any at all…being able to help them makes us feel good and making sure we are always there on time and happy to receive what is being given makes our life richer!

    I tell everyone I can about Ruby’s Pantry. I went once in the fall, and then again recently this month! The first few items I received this month (Hamburger meat) were worth the $20!! You really do get a lot of food for the price. And a lot of the offerings are “new to me” so my food tastes can expand as I try new things!!! It is definitely a good thing!!!
