Dear NNEMAP Food Pantry Donors,
Wow. There are no words to describe your generosity, so “Wow,” is going to have to do. The “Big Give” ended yesterday afternoon at 6:00pm. In just 32 hours, you donated $52,513.89 to NNEMAP Food Pantry. And that’s BEFORE our share of matching funds from the prize pool.
In a year when we have lost so much, you reminded us of just how much we have. We have your support. We have your encouragement. We have…you.
On behalf of the thousands of area households we serve, thank you for being there for us.
From the entire staff and Board of Directors, thank you for walking beside us as we strive to eliminate hunger in our city.
From all of us to all of you–THANK YOU for your support.
NNEMAP Food Pantry
#GivingTuesday has given way to Grateful Wednesday. Why are we so grateful? Because of YOU! Thanks to a generous matching funds opportunity, NNEMAP Food Pantry donors raised $3,600 to help fuel our mission!
NNEMAP Food Pantry can do a lot with a little. That $3,600 can buy about 2 months worth of food for our customers AND pay the electricity bill to keep it fresh.
So what does “2 months worth of food” even mean?!? Good question–let us explain. We see about 1,500 pantry visits each month, and each household averages about 3 members. We provide enough food for about 3 days worth of meals per pantry visit (so about 9 meals per person per visit).
So that $3,600 will account for about 40,000 meals (1,500 pantry visits x 3 persons per household x 9 meals per person)…
…AND enough cash leftover to keep the lights on and the freezers and coolers running. We’re pretty thrifty!
We are all about second chances. If you missed out on Giving Tuesday, don’t despair. You can always DONATE NOW!!! We promise to get some bang for your bucks!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR MISSION!!!
Today’s the day–Giving Tuesday has arrived! Today, the world unites in a global giving event to assist nonprofit organizations like NNEMAP Food Pantry.

But wait, oh yes, there’s more!
A second generous donor has agreed to MATCH THE NEXT $500. That’s right–MATCHING FUNDS are available FOR THE FIRST $1,500 RAISED on Giving Tuesday!
