At WHAM no one leaves hungry. The pantry has ample space for families to make healthy food choices for their family. Families do not receive pre selected boxes filled with generic food items. Out families have a shopping experience where they can select fresh produce, breads, frozen and prepared food.
Each month we provide 25 boxes of fresh produce to over 100 senior host food drives open to the entire community. We welcome any non-perishable food items and can be dropped off during our regular business hours.
No appointments are needed to receive our food pantry products. M-Sat. 10am-1pm
WHAM has always relied heavily on volunteer to fulfill the mission since our inception. We have on average 300 volunteers to serve children, families, and homeless individuals. Our volunteer opportunities come in several forms. We have groups that come to our campus to work on special projects. Companies, churches and troops choose WHAM as their community services projects. Retirees and non working volunteers commit to regular shifts as receptionist and interviews. Others get school or court required hours volunteering in our food pantry or resale store.
