RUBY’S PANTRY MISSION STATEMENT:  To procure and distribute corporate surplus food and goods to help fight poverty, hunger and disease in rural communities for those with low resources and in crisis through churches, food shelves and other local civic organizations.  To develop the “Blessing Box concept to activate people in being alert to the needs of others and to be proactive in encouraging, showing friendship and meeting tangible needs of struggling neighbors, friends and strangers, regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.

HOW DOES RUBY’S PANTRY DO THIS?  Ruby’s Pantry builds relationships with manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and other non-profit agencies which is key to sourcing food.  Whether it be a pallet or semi-loads, Ruby’s Pantry food donors have come to depend on the ability of Ruby’s Pantry to pick up donors’ surpluses in a timely manner and at their convenience.

Ruby’s Pantry transportation department coordinates pickups from food donors and also coordinates the deliveries to food distribution sites, which New Hope Community Church – Ruby’s Pantry is now one of!

A COMMUNITY EVENT!  As hundreds of people gather at distribution sites monthly, they have one thing in common … they are gathering to get food at a Ruby’s Pantry Food Distribution!  With a helping hand, the people gather with a feeling of dignity and enjoy the friends they meet and continue to see each month.  Join us!
