2022 Reflection
Published on December 6, 2022 by Alicia Brumlow

We accomplished so much in 2022. We started 3 open community pantries, and coordinated a network of volunteers to make sure it stays clean and stocked. We were able to start a monthly Trading Post Event where folks can come to trade cool stuff. These events also featured free pop-up pantries for folks to take home food and toiletries! We used the majority of our funds for these events to purchase fresh produce, dry goods, and personal care items. We also used funds to stock our emergency pantries for folks without access to transportation.

We faced a few challenges in 2022, but we learned to keep pivoting and to go in the direction of what works. 

In 2023, we hope to continue our monthly Trading Post Events. We hope to open our first community fridge as well. This is our most pressing goal for the immediate future. 

Thank y'all!!
