Special Cookies from Special Kneads and Treats

Every Friday Special Kneads and Treats Bakery donates 180 assorted cookies for us to give our clients. (Pictured, bakery employee Ian holding this week’s cookies.) Along with their meats, meals, and other groceries, each of our clients receives one perfect, delicious SK&T cookie.

It’s been fun for us to observe the absolute love/love relationship people have with these cookies.

A married father of four, quietly waiting for his groceries, completely immersed in his cookie. A solemn little girl, carefully selecting just the right cookie for each person in her large family. Two little boys, noting we’re about to close and asking wide-eyed if they can have the last two cookies. (Of course they can!) An adult caregiver of an elderly mother, relating that the very first thing her mother does upon receiving her groceries is to locate her cookie among the bags and eat it up.

Thanks, Special Kneads and Treats, for making our clients’ lives a little brighter!

Thank you! Statistics for March-June

Between March and June your donations enabled our whole foods pantry to serve 1,420 people with each person getting up to 11 lbs. of good wholesome food – a total of 15,600 lbs. of food, or nearly 8 TONS. That includes 1,720 lbs. of fresh-frozen, great-quality chicken and 320 lbs. of fresh-frozen, great-quality ground beef. Our clients sure appreciate it and so do we. Thanks!
