News from the Rehoboth Food Pantry


It's hard to believe that we are already in 2022! I know many are anxious to say goodbye to last year, though we at the Pantry are incredibly thankful for how this community banded together once again throughout 2021 to keep our neighbors fed and warm. Rehoboth is a wonderful town, with a giant heart, and we are all blessed to be a part of it.

There are so very many to thank for last year. It is the residents and businesses of this (and nearby!) town(s) that have provided the Rehoboth Food Pantry with what is needed to keep helping our neighbors, and there are countless people to thank. So, in an attempt to say thank you to as many of you as we can - THANK YOU ALL OF REHOBOTH!! Personal donations, food drives, even holiday lightshow food drop offs - each and every act of kindness has helped - both great and small!

In no particular order or significance - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

  • Rehoboth folks for the outpouring of food and monetary gifts, and gift cards - Thank You!
  • To the Rehoboth Reporter Team for donating space in both print and your website, ensuring our messages go out to the community - Thank You!

Last, but most certainly not least - a huge THANK YOU to the generosity of so many of you that have requested anonymity! You have brought so much to the pantry this (and many previous!) years, and we are ever so grateful.

In closing, it amazes me to continue to say just how wonderful this town really is! Let's keep doing what we do as 2022 comes upon us, and we will continue to be a blessed town filled with wonderful people!

Happy New Year!
