Debbie Langdon, the director of the Bowie Interfaith Food Pantry and Emergency Aid Fund, will be the speaker.
The Pantry has only two paid staff members: Debbie and a janitor. Both are part-time even though Debbie is at the Pantry nearly every day of the week.
Other than the two staff member, the pantry is dependent on volunteers to keep it operating.
And the pantry is completely dependent on the generosity of the community to keep it stocked.
The pantry serves several hundred clients a month and does special food packs for diabetic and homeless clients. Pantry Patter newsletter provides statistics and other information about the Pantry.
The Garden Club's contribution to the Pantry has helped establish the Food Pantry Garden. All of the Gardeners are volunteers. Several are members of the Garden Club. Ms Langdon's talk to the Garden Club will include a tour of the Food Pantry.
