Greetings LIRIM supporters and those who have supported our DACA scholars program in the past.
Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry
The food pantry continues to be grateful to the parishioners of Trinity Episcopal Church for your most faithful, generous, and increased giving to our ministry of giving food to people in need. Additional giving in the past few months has been received from the John Emerson Memorial to TIFP, other memorials, from members of TIFP Partner churches, from former members of Trinity Episcopal Church, from TIFP volunteers, from other churches in Lawrence, from the youth group at Immanuel Lutheran Church, from individuals in the city and other cities, and from businesses in Lawrence and in other cities. We are most grateful to continue providing food now, and in the days ahead, to people in need with such abundant support.
Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry (TIFP) was open nine days in June, 2020 and served 225 households. So far (these first six months in 2020), the food pantry has been open 50 days and has served 1,402 households.
The total expense in June for food purchased locally and through Harvesters was $ 1,286.05 and the total retail equivalent value of all food provided was $ 4,851.00. Each grocery bag of food has a retail value of $ 21.00.
Our patrons receive one bag of pre-bagged food along with a bag of cold food. TIFP provides food to any person requesting food with no requirements for requesting food. TIFP tracks only the number of people coming each day for food assistance when the food pantry is open.
We continue to order food from Harvesters which provides the majority of the food we give. Our food manager continually monitors food availability from Harvesters, as there is high demand for staple foods from Harvesters. Local shopping provides some specific foods, but there continues to be volume limits for certain foods (specific types of meats and frozen orange juice). Harvesters continues to provide bread and fresh produce (at no charge) to our food pantry.
During the months of March through the present time in July, TIFP continues to distribute food at a distance of about 30 feet outside from the Matthews Center (near the parking lot). Physical distancing of our clients is used for anyone waiting in line for food. Our volunteers wear facemasks and plastic gloves and practice physical distancing inside the food pantry and outside serving our patrons.
Volunteers with the Mobile Food Distribution (Harvesters) on June 27, 2020 served 148 households and parked about 95 cars. Volunteers are from Trinity Episcopal Church and other persons connected to Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry, along with Catholic Charities of NE Kansas, First Baptist Church, Salvation Army, and the Boy Scouts.

BackSnack continues to find ways to serve
While the Back Snack program has changed its distribution, Trinity’s program continues to find ways of serving hungry kids in Lawrence. When Back Snack was not reaching the neediest kids by offering the food packets at Trinity, Tod Sutton and Greg Hazen took quick action to put out a notice to our 12 school contacts to find how our church could best serve the students. A pilot program was conducted to deliver 60 food packs to hungry Woodlawn students the second week of April at the school site. .
The program continues to develop and reach out to the community while staying within the COVID-19 guidelines. Back Snack plans to deliver food packets to Hillcrest and Kennedy students at their individual schools during the week of April 19. We will be evaluating the program each week moving forward. Any plan will put the health and safety of our volunteers, the children and their families first.
The food distributed is provided by Harvesters. At this time, no fruit is being distributed and as a result, the BackSnack program has no expenses. While we are not in need of contributions, your prayers are very much appreciated.
