To celebrate the hard work and sacrifice of our volunteers and donors, we asked our families to tell us how important our food is to them and to share pictures of meals they cooked. Here are some of their replies:
“I need your food to survive. Merry Christmas!” – Adel
“Thank you and everyone involved in the food pantry. It has truly been a blessing. Each time I go there, I am so impressed with the volunteers who work so hard to make it possible for those of us in need to feed our families. I am thankful to the donors who supply such ample amounts of food for the needy. Thank you!” – Katherine
“Good morning to all the workers, the food staff, and everyone who contributed to making this possible for my family. I have no words to express my gratitude toward everyone and all the donors. The groceries help my family in so many ways. Once again thank you and may God richly continue to bless everyone who donated and all the volunteers. Thank you and a Happy Holidays.” – Nerlande
“I would like to say thank you to all of the volunteers, donors, and Dan and Jacquie for all the hard work they do to get food for those in need. With the food, I got this week I was able to have an amazing holiday dinner with my family that otherwise wouldn’t have happened. Thank you for bringing us together. I can’t thank you enough for the help during these trying times. Getting food makes me as a mom confident that my son will not go hungry and gives me the ability to not be stressed about where our next meal is coming from. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.” – Jessica
“I thank you and your staff from the center of my heart … The food that My Family receives from you all …to be honest… I can’t even purchase from the store because it’s too expensive, and I can’t afford it. So, I’m grateful for all that you all do for the Families in Palm Beach County. I Pray All of God’s Blessings to Be Upon You and Your Staff. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.” – Thelma
“If it were not for the generosity of your donors we would not have been blessed to enjoy the wonderful shrimp and produce provided. We put it to good use and made Southern Style Shrimp and Grits! Thank you so much to the donors and volunteers for making our holiday a little merrier.” — Marisa
“I’m grateful to be able to have a beautiful Christmas dinner and breakfast with all of your help. This year has been a crazy year with a lot of ups and downs, but I’m fortunate to not have to worry about feeding my children because of your generosity. With all the hardships we faced this year our family is able to find comfort with all your help.” — Arelis
“Putting our gratitude to you in words will always fall short because it’s such a magnanimous thing you do. Our home has had an awful lot to worry about in the past few years. We’ve even suffered a loss of a family member that is especially difficult. Christmas this year was sparse but thanks to your outreach of food, we had one less thing to worry about. In fact, it was more important than anything else. We see how your volunteers gave their energy and time to others. The coordinators of the food pantry are incredible persons. I don’t know how y’all do it.” — Juan
“We wouldn’t have had any food at all without everybody’s help! And it was extra special having ham for Christmas.” — Dawn
“I am a 77-year-old living in Century Village and cannot thank you enough for all the great work you and your volunteers do. Many of my neighbors are not so fortunate, and it has been my pleasure to share my good fortune with them. You cannot imagine how many hungry seniors there are because Social Security is not enough to live on.” — Navy Mommee
“Dear Dan and Jacquie, my family (me, my husband, and our two children) want to thank you and everyone involved in such an important matter from the bottom of our hearts. We are grateful to you for giving us the opportunity to have food during a difficult financial period. We wish you prosperity and may all people have food a roof over their head.” —Yulia
“…Your service helps provide my husband and I plus our four (4) children with food every month. Most months it is what gets us by entirely. Thank you and your generous team for all that you do.” – Sarah
“We appreciate all the food we receive and am blessed to be part of such an awesome program! God truly blesses our family with your kindness and thoughtfulness and helps to make our handicapped son loving the food which is the primary thing that he enjoys most of all! Sincerely in His love, — Tex, Peg, Kevin
“Thank you so very much for the food. Christmas dinner and my birthday were made special because of the generous donations from all the people who gave. We had the eye of round roast with asparagus, pasta, and Bearnaise sauce. All my and my family favorites. Thank you again for making our life a little easier knowing we will eat well for at least 2 weeks a month and our other bills can get paid.” – Pamela
“I wanted to say thank you for helping us! The food is a great help. If I wouldn’t have had it I would have to use my money to buy it and I’m having a hard time right now so it’s a great help. It helped me free up money to pay rent as well.” – Katheerin
