4 Pantries Share $100K Jubilee Grant from Norbertines

Norbertines present $100,000 donatin to 4 pantries in Green Bay

Hope Center Pantry benefited tremendously from a jubilee grant from the Norbertines! On a beautiful, sunny day in May, the Norbertine Community at St. Norbert Abbey presented four checks totaling $100,000 to four local Brown County food pantries.

Hope Center Pantry was one of the fortunate recipients. The Norbertines chose to recognize the 900th anniversary of the founding of the Norbertine Order, which started in France in 1121. So, starting in 2021 they have designated jubilee grants that have been distributed both locally and internationally to nonprofit organizations that assist those in need.

How did Hope Center Pantry use this generous donation? The panty purchased groceries to stock the pantry storage room.

As rent, food, and gas costs continue to rise in Wisconsin, more people experience food insecurity. Over and over again, the pantry clients express genuine appreciation when we provide them with a substantial amount of food. We are grateful to the Norbertine Community for supporting the pantry.

Hunger is a real problem in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and donors like the Norbertines are part of the solution. Thank you for donating to Hope Center Pantry to help end hunger in Green Bay.
