The We Care Food Club and Food Pantry
by Laura Olmstead
Food and Housing Program Director
We Care has been going strong for over 35 years. What an incredible testimony that is. We started small years ago, before I ever heard of this place. Over the years we have expanded in order to do all we can to better serve this community. We purchase semi truckloads of food, as often as we can, to try and provide a little food store/club to our people at a rate they can afford and to offset the incredible costs of the food bag program. We try so very hard to search and provide quality items for each of you. We have been providing supplemental emergency food bags since the early 80's. For nearly 900 families each month we prepare, search and shop to provide the most we can through our supplemental and assistance programs.
We are thankful for our long relationship with Second Harvest Food Bank in Chattanooga, Feed America program that enables us to continually serve. It is truly a blessing to know we are able to help so many. We love working with other agencies and churches to form partnerships to meet the needs of our neighbors. We welcome all to come visit and see what we do at the We Care Food Club and Pantry. We would love to share our stories.
