GARDEN CITY, Idaho — At a time when some food pantries are being forced to close their doors because of a lack of donations, other community food pantries are thriving. The Boise Vineyard Church has been receiving food from other pantries that are closing, so now they have plenty to give away.
"We just love every single person that comes, and we want them to know that we're here for them, we're here with them, and then obviously that wouldn't mean as much if we weren't giving something practical to them like a big-o-box of food," said Samuel Burns, Benevolence overseer. "We do fill up these boxes. We always have. We try to give a lot. The more we give the more we get so we can give it back again."
If you are struggling to make ends meet and need to put food on the table, the Boise Vineyard Church invites you to stop by their pantry. They will be open from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday.
They ask that you come with your drivers license to prove you live in either Ada or Elmore counties. The food pantry is located behind the church at 4950 North Bradley Street in Garden City.
