Last weekend, on Sept. 24, - an affiliate of the Marin and San Francisco Food Banks - celebrated four months at the and recognized the volunteers that have made the free food pantry a success.
The group has been serving 125 families a week with free food and volunteers come from all parts of the Fairfax community, from high school students to seniors citizens.
On Sept. 24, pancakes were served to the volunteers to pause and give thanks to each person who has volunteered in the start-up phase of the food pantry. Rev. Katharine Harts blessed the circle of helpers, then Fairfax Mayor Larry Bragman gave a community service award to Rev. Harts and Holly Bragman, from the Fairfax Volunteers.
Then, the doors were open to 125 families who needed food.
There are no income requirements or paperwork to recieve food from the pantry, which offers fresh produce in a farmers market style set-up. The food bank runs from 9 a.m. to noon every Saturday at the Fairfax Community Church.
