Georgetown, TX Over the last 2 years, The Caring Place has undergone changes to increase efficiency. The organization has identified an additional modification to enhance operations. The Caring Place Food Pantry will be closed on Thursdays in order to better participate in remote food distribution. Beginning in May, the Food Pantry will be open at 2000 Railroad Avenue on Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri, 9 AM - 4 PM.
Earlier this year Food Programs and Facilities Director David Earl shared, “We are excited to get back to a free choice model in our Food Pantry. This means our neighbors can select items they know their families will enjoy. If you find money tight right now due to increased gas or grocery costs, then we encourage you to visit us. That’s why The Caring Place Food Pantry is here. ” The organization re-opened the Food Pantry as a free choice model in April and is already seeing positive feedback from neighbors.
