Hosanna has developed a strong and growing ministry of outreach to individuals and families from our Rochester community who walk through our doors needing food and financial help.
The Sharing and Caring Pantry was an Eagle Scout project, developed by Matt Wojahn in April of 2000. He built and decorated a small pantry made of solid oak that he engraved with the name, Sharing and Caring Box. Members fill the pantry with donated, non-perishable groceries.
Community members can come in as often as they need, to get a bag or two of groceries to help feed their families. Visits to Hosanna’s Sharing and Caring Food Pantry happen almost daily from Monday – Friday, year round. Along with the non-perishable food in the pantry, families are often given a gas voucher from the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund and a frozen Susan’s Supper to take with them.
