“Janis exemplifies what it means to love thy neighbor. She comes every week for several hours on our busiest day, helping to check and stock food and then serve the food to families. It’s hard work at times, but Janis always serves with a big heart and smiling face,” said Wendy Osborne, director of Tabitha’s Way. “We are blessed to have her as a part of our food pantry.”

Local organizations such as Tabitha’s Way rely on the help of volunteers to feed the thousands of individuals served monthly. Along with food, the organization also provides supplies for infants and seniors such as diapers and hygiene kits.
