They don't treat people with the respect they deserve! Esp the "Sons". Cruel and rude. I would recommend other food pantries....St.. Anthony's, Holy Trinity, St. Matthew Lutheran. Anyplace but Sunshine. When a person comes to the food bank, some of them are so beaten down only to be beaten down more by the Jared Nannis. I don't trust him. Maybe someone should investigate the finances of Sunshine Pantry.
My family of 6 has been struggling. After days of having barely any food to eat I broke down and drove to the pantry with my 7 month old son. I filled out a form and sat patiently with my empty bags. After a 2 hour wait my name was called. I brought up my bags and told the owner Sharon how many in my family. A total of six. She then took all my empty bags and told me I could keep one and thd rest would be for other people to use. I was not sure how she was going to fit enough to food for 6 people into one small bag. Then she said to pick a cake and loaf of bread and wait. While j stood there several customers came in that apparently were regulars. They were called back withen a minute or two and Sharon proceeding to start packing there large bags and containers with fresh nice looking foods and fresh milk and meats and salads. I was impressed as they had stated only 3 or 3 members in there family. I thought I would certainly be getting some nice food for my family. Well, her son then came up to me and offered me a tiny sack of grocerys. I said okay kinda confused cause I was being offered less than half what these small families who had not had to wait we're getting. But hungry and desperate I accepted it. My baby had started to cry due to hunger as I have not had formula or baby food all day. Next to me was a large rack of formula and baby food I asked if there was anyway I could have some saying that my wic had run out and I had rj wait 2 more weeks for formula and baby food. My 7 month old was actually leaning and reaching towards the jars of food. Sharon's son sighed and said well.... I guess and proceeded to hand me 3 tiny jars of baby food I asked if I could have a formula container as they had many and he instead offered me a tiny sized container of rice cereal saying it was rice formula and should be good enough. I tried to exxon j needed actual formula but he ussured me out. Upon arriving home I opened my tiny sack and started crying. All they had given me where two expired yogurts that we're dated almost a month old and a expired Carsten of orange juice a onion and a tiny pack of frozen hamburger also expired and a couple of frozen expired breakfast burritos. Not even a single canned good was included or any type of vegi I had been so hopeful after seeing the items other customers had received. I feel so stupid for reaching out to this pantry. My children came home from school and all I could feed them tonight were the things from this bag. I am honestly concerned that they are now getting sick from the old hamburger and rotten yogurt. Plus they only gave me two tiny baby yogurts and all 4 children fought over them only to realize they were sour and curdled. I let my family down and wasted 10 dollars in gas. Please don't go to this pantry if you are not a regular it will only make you feel worse about your situation. To be standing there hungry and worn down surrounded by fresh food that was not offered to me broke me down even more than I already was. The people rat were regulars we're grossly overweight and clearly not starving. I'm 5 feet 7 and weight 99 lbs I haven't eaten in 4 days because I have 4 children that come first. I know they could see I am literally starving and my poor baby was crying and grabbing at the food. He has already eaten the hard we were given and I'd still hungry. I'm so desperate that I may have to go to a sup kitchen in the morning. Please share your story if you've had a similar experience. Please help people like me get it out there what a scam this pantry us!!!!!
