What a busy year 2013 was for the Homer Community Food Pantry. It’s been a year of changes. We lost Juanita, our longest serving board member, and Gregory, who kept us all organized.

We are so proud to be a part of this community. When our funds were low and we were unsure if we could provide for the needy households in our area, you came through. We were all a bit off schedule this year, one step behind if you will, but once you heard the call, you responded in true community s...
