The Buffalo Senior Center and Lynn's Superfoods sponsored our "Stuff the Bus" food drive on Saturday, May 18th. Generous donors gave 798 pounds of food and monetary donations. The Buffalo Senior Center staff and volunteers from the Bread of Life Food Pantry helped load, unload, weigh, and stock the items. The wonderful employees of Lynn's Superfoods were a huge help with setting up prepackaged bags, supplying drinks, and carrying out donations. Thank you to everyone who made this possible!

April 25, 2024 - Well, the count is final! Mrs. Scarlett's class unseated Mr. Farris' class by 80 pounds in the Cloud Peak Elementary - JCSD #1 annual food drive. Mr. Farris' class had won every year until now. The school brought in a total of 4,589 pounds of food, shattering last year's total of 3,027 pounds! We believe this is the largest amount of food we have ever had brought in from one drive. The students even stayed and helped us sort and stock. Thank you to everyone at Cloud Peak Elementary for supporting our pantry and the community.

 

APRIL 19, 2024 - The Kountry Kids 4H group brought in 105 pounds of food today. They also helped stock the items. Thank you to them for their generosity.

 

MARCH 23, 2024 - The Boy Scouts annual food drive was a huge success! Thank you to the Boy Scouts and their leaders, Malerie Keown, and Parker & Melanie Ruby. Thank you also to Greg Shavlik and the Winchester 4H Group for their assistance with checking dates and sorting food items. Bread of Life Food Pantry committee members Pitchy Gammon, Marilyn Novotny, Lynne Turner, and volunteer Larry Hanson were also a huge help with checking in food and stocking. The combined effort is greatly appreciated.

JANUARY 2024 - Last quarter was eventful at the pantry.
