Malachi’s Storehouse, emergency food pantry located at St. Patrick’s in Dunwoody, is excited to announce that they are the recipient of a grant from Episcopal Community Foundation of Middle and North Georgia (ECF) of $10,400! This grant will be used to purchase protein for their food pantry from the Atlanta Community Food Bank for the period of 1 year.
Why is this important?
“More than 25 percent of Georgia children face food insecurity, and Georgia is seventh in the nation for senior citizens facing hunger,” according to Lindsey Hardegree, Executive Director of Episcopal Community Foundation of Middle and North Georgia. With this grant, Malachi’s will be able to purchase (primarily) chicken to provide a consistent source of protein to our clients every week.
Malachi’s Storehouse is an outreach ministry of St. Patrick’s and is open every Wednesday from 11am to 3pm, providing a hot lunch, groceries, and clothing to anyone in need. Malachi’s is an integral part of the life of the parish at St. Patrick’s where parishioners have supported the food pantry for 25 years! Visit our website at malachisstorehouse.org.
Malachi’s board, volunteers and clients wish to thank ECF for the generous grant, which will help improve the lives of those they serve!
