Giving Tuesday 2022 – The Green Apple Pantry Wants To Feed More Neighbors

Nov 17, 2022 By

Do you know our vision at The Green Apple Pantry?

At The Green Apple Pantry we seek to improve the lives of our community, by providing nourishment to our neighbors in need, supplying them with healthy food and personal items; as well as tools of empowerment. Our goal is to assist our neighbors in nourishing them in – mind, body and soul.

We are an independent, 501c3 non-profit organization and we need your help. If you feel empowered to help others and don’t want anyone to go to sleep hungry, can you give on Giving Tuesday to The Green Apple Pantry? Thank you.

You might be asking – who do we help?

280 families | 750 individuals | 286 seniors | 210 children

Neighbors receive every 4 weeks: a box of shelf stable food, meats, dairy, produce and fresh bread.

Individuals receive: 90 pounds of food

Families receive: 150 pounds of food

How do we do this? – with the help of people like you. Every week people give their time to make sure others can eat and be happy. We have 45 monthly volunteers that give 510 hours of service to our community.

Again, all proceeds from Giving Tuesday 2022 will go to the local south Grand Rapids and Kentwood friends and neighbors. We are proud to serve our neighbors and never want that to go away.
