    To: F3 Crossroads

    Subject: Plainfield Area Interfaith Food Pantry

    From: Mike Hutson (Hanger)

    Dear Men

    Spending the last 3 months at the food pantry I have come to the conclusion that F3 Crossroads has a great opportunity to assist the pantry in their daily operations. The panty is run by Pat Cork who dedicates her time to make sure the pantry runs as smooth as possible. There are a lot of moving parts to their daily routine that change each day. Without detailing all these moving parts the pantry has asked if we could assist with distribution on Wednesday mornings with the following.

    Wednesday Schedule only ( 1 ) F3 Pax needed 7:00 – 9:00 or later if possible.

    7:00 Start of check in of vehicles (F3 help)

    7:30 Start of customers shopping (F3 assist in putting groceries in vehicle for customer)

    10:30 Start closing down

    I created a google document with dates to help cover this time slot 7-9am. F3 volunteer would be there at 7:00am and leave when they had to. The pantry would appreciate any help on Wednesday. Responsibility would be to assist in checking in vehicles, helping volunteers move panty food around and assist putting groceries in vehicles for customers.

    This is only a small step in building our relationship with the pantry. I would like to set up a line of communication with the pantry for when they need a volunteer other then Wednesday. This would be to assist when they know a food truck is dropping off on a certain day or around the holidays when additional help is needed. I would put it out on the app and see if we can fill the need. This is just a small part in the initial phase of something much bigger as our relationship and commitment grows with the pantry. The work we do on Wednesdays is the same work that they do on Saturday mornings at the same location. Only 1 Pax is needed for this job 2 would be fine but anymore then that would be overkill. We can start small and grow with the pantry as they take on more responsibilities .


    *edited – see our events calendar to HC. Will be updated shortly

    Great job @hanger and @fishsticks this is what living 3rd is all about. A belief of something bigger and giving back to community. Thank you for your leadership. My goal is to find 1 or 2 days in July I can arrange my work schedule to make it out.
