Food Pantry Donations
Another way Friendly City is able to give back to the community is through twice weekly donations of food to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church Food Pantry and Mercy House.
Produce, vegetables, pre-made salads and sandwiches, which are not sellable in the store, are donated to help feed those in need. Other produce, which is not good enough to donate, is used as compost by New Community Project’s Vine and Fig. Some of the resulting produce is then sold back to Friendly City Food Co-op, to complete the sustainable cycle.
