Water Relief for Martin County

Thank you for your donation to support the water relief efforts in Martin County. In total we have received more than $38,000 and this is the place where we will update what the Food Bank is doing with those funds and to help the residents of Martin County during this crisis.

To date God’s Pantry Food Bank and Facing Hunger Foodbank have delivered 3 1/2 truckloads of water to the county. They have been delivered to local food pantries and fire stations for residents to pick up and one direct drop where residents were able to get gallons of water right off the God’s Pantry Food Bank truck. Three of the truck loads were acquired through the Food Bank’s relationship with Feeding America. Going forward we will be purchasing water to supplement what is donated. Every Friday beginning Friday February 16th, for the foreseeable future, there is a truck scheduled to deliver pallets of water to the area.

As of 2/14 there will be 2 more donated loads of water from Feeding America and we have purchased 4 truckloads of water for delivery starting February 26 and going into March.

On behalf of God’s Pantry Food Bank and Facing Hunger Foodbank we would like to thank you for joining us in providing water to the residents of Martin County in their time of need.
