My name is Mike Hayes. I'm the director of the Mishawaka Food Pantry. The pantry is located downtown Mishawaka at 315 Lincolnway West.

Imagine with me, if you will, what it would be like to lose the income of the head of your household. It sends a chill up my spine to picture the small children in these households telling their parents that they are hungry and the horror that parent must feel knowing there is no food. How sad that this is happening in our community.

Friends, there is no reason for these parents to be put in this position, or for those children to be hungry. The economy is hitting us hard and food pantries are already straining. We as a community must step up where we can. These people in need might be strangers, but tomorrow it could be your neighbor, a family member, a friend, or a past customer.

The Mishawaka Food Pantry provides food, clothing, house wares, and appliances (when available). These goods are provided through your generous donations. We also have volunteer opportunities for those wanting direct involvement. This truly is a community partnership. Won't you consider being a community partner? What can you, your church, organization, or company do? Be a hero to those in need right here in our own community. Please act now!

For more information on how you can help, please call, and thank you for your kind consideration.
