Pantry director Kathy McIntosh notes that the Pantry is “volunteer-powered”, saying, ” I want to thank our wonderful volunteers at the Silver Stage Food Pantry for putting in 1,630 hours of volunteer work in October. We could not do it without their hard work. Special thanks to Tomi, Herb and Lisa, and to Lyon County Human Services, for going above and beyond and also helping to deliver food boxes to shut-ins (home-bound seniors).”

The Pantry is a unique “one-stop shop” that offers job skills training for volunteers, an organic community garden, weekly employment services with Community Chest AdultWorks staff, and periodic visits from area health agencies that offer flu shots and other services. A certified Community Health Advocate from Healthy Communities Coalition has an office at the Pantry, and offers on site workshops on tobacco cessation, diabetes management, and mental health “first aid”, etc. The Pantry is also currently holding a warm coats, gloves, blankets, and socks drive.
