Why We Do What We Do!
Hillside Food Pantry began as an outreach ministry committed to showing the love of God in a meaningful way by distributing "rescued food" to people in need. It also provided an opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together for a common purpose and help make our community a better place for all of us.
What didn't anticipate was how our simple commitment to treat our patrons with dignity and respect and make coming to a food pantry as stress-free as possible set such a caring and friendly tone that we have become a "community of people helping people." Smiles and hugs are freely given and received, and we see that "It's about more than just the food."
We are gratified by how many individuals, groups, churches, synagogues, businesses and community organizations have come alongside us to be a part of it all. It is more than we ever hoped and we feel truly blessed by all that God has allowed us to accomplish together.
