The warehouse has added an additional 2,500 square feet of warehouse storage for food distribution, with cool storage available for fresh and frozen products donated in large quantities from regional grocery stores. The Myrtle Point Pantry has been open summer 2010 and is serving record numbers of people through the new shopping style pantry. This food pantry is the first fully “shopping style” pantry in the region and the first to have solar power. Individuals and families are able to pick food that they want to eat, compliments what they may have in their cupboards already, and fits with any dietary restrictions. Having choice reduces food waste and gives people a sense of dignity and respect. The addition of the solar panels will save the pantry money, making more funds available to feed people.
