Garage of Blessings has always had some nonperishable food available to the community, on a shelf in our free thrift store. These offerings came from generous community donations.

This blessing of food evolved and expanded in the Fall of 2020 when we reopened. At the same time the food pantry got it’s official name and current location at the back of the Garage, we developed a partnership with Whidbey Island Angels. They graciously offered us some of the food they pick up weekly. This allowed us to supplement our regular food donations from the community and expand our pantry to bless more families.

Jayne joined the Garage of Blessings in 2021 and now manages the food pantry. It has bloomed in its offerings over the last year. Jayne and her assistants work hard to offer a full pantry of food for its patrons, Jayne picks up food from Whidbey Island Angels weekly and brings it to the Garage. What we have available varies from week to week. Jayne often makes up bags of yummy but healthy food treats for the kids who come in with their parents. If a person experiencing homelessness has special needs like a coat, socks or something else, Jayne will work to find them what they need.

The pantry serves 20-30 families a week. It would not be possible without your generous donations and the help of Whidbey Island Angels. If you would like to help, you can drop off food donations anytime we are open, Monday-Friday 11am-3pm.

The pantry is at the back of the garage, next to our donation door.

If we are lucky, we get in some fresh produce, eggs, yogurt, etc. We have a fridge to them at a safe temperature. These go fast and are much appreciated!
