Agency Spotlight: Jesus Loves You Outreach

Jesus Loves you Outreach is a small pantry located in  Winter Garden. Upon arrival you would never know that they feed about 550 people a month. With a small space and a team of volunteers, they are able to provide groceries to their community. If you were to visit this pantry, you might receive a bag of food made up of fresh milk, veggies, meat, cereal and other staples that make a huge impact on the families in Winter Garden. Having visited several of their distributions, I am always struck by the sense of  community, all the smiling faces and conversations that are happening between the clients.

Pauline Jackson, the President of the food pantry, makes sure the community knows when and where the food is being distributed, making it accessible for everyone. During my last visit she was excited to share that she had made a calendar with the distribution days and times on it and pens to share with her clients and community partners. It’s a privilege to see  agencies like Jesus Loves You do extraordinary things in the community with the resources available to them!
