From the Director's Chair 
 
In 2016, The Family Pantry served over 9,200 clients, re-launched the Cape Cod Community College Pantry, rolled out the Healthy Meals in Motion mobile pantry, distributed over 57,000 bags of groceries and still had time to celebrate our volunteer team.  Gail Turner and the artists from the Cape Cod Potters put on another great "Soup Bowls for Hunger" event and the "Shop for the Hungry" campaign has met a major milestone. There is so much to be grateful for. Thank you for taking a minute to read about the Pantry.  You are our greatest ambassadors! If someone needs help send them to us. If you can support the Pantry we welcome your "time, talent or treasure."  
 
Be well, I hope to see you at our Summer Gala!

Shop for the Hungry Campaign 
 
 
 
 
 
Thank You!
 
 
We are delighted to announce that the Pantry has raised over 72% of our $1 million goal.  Ultimately, meeting this goal will enable the Pantry to provide more food and clothing for those in need across Cape Cod.  We are humbled by the support our campaign has generated. However, we still need your help to raise another $275,540 to finish the campaign. Please help by clicking here to make your two - year pledge. Every gift matters, no matter the size.

Picture yourself: It is a summer evening, listening to great music, drink in hand, friends surrounding you, boats rocking in the harbor, someone hands you a shrimp cocktail.... Does it get any better?  Yes, when you realize you are at "The Summer Gala" benefiting the Family Pantry of Cape Cod!
 
 
Soup Bowls for Hunger   
 
A roaring success for the past 25 years - Thank You 
 
Gail Turner and the Cape Cod Potters have successfully hosted "Soup Bowls for Hunger" for the past 25 years.  This year it was once again a sell - out crowd, with people coming from across the Cape to enjoy the meal and take home their handmade artisan soup bowls. Thanks go to Cape Cod Tech's Culinary Department, the Girl Scouts, Cape Cod Five Charitable Foundation and the countless volunteers and artists who make the event possible.
