No the food pantry also helps low income and disabled adults. Anyone can buy from the thrift store.

I understand thats munch helps ppl and thats great but ive been there when one of the main ppls kids have been there and walked out with a truck full of stuff after hours and watched them go through it and take it and thats outta the stuff that ppl just brought in and hadnt even been priced. No money was exchanged and i also was told by the same person her mom done that all the time and thats where they got this and that and that from that was in the garage not being used they just had it bevause they "might" need it later. I understand their volunteering but thats y they call it volunteering because ur volunteering to help the community not volunteering to take what u want when u want. Maybe they should start keeping their eyes on ppl that have keys. Its great theres a place to go if u need it but tge ppl i watched take from the store didnt need the things they took and had plenty of money to pay at least the discounted prices.

i think munch is great, it helps out alot of people the prices are fair, they keep with the season changes, it is very clean and organized, they volunteers deserve a big thanks for all they do.
what I wonder about is why there is better stuff in the dumpster than there is on the racks i know several people that took donations there that was real quality items and they were just put in the dumpster instead of going on the racks. those people have decided not to donate again, they will take it somewhere else. this isn't just a one time thing either i know of at least 5 different people this happened to. why? seriously why would anyone do that. that said i think munch does alot of good

Mostly they have been a nice store and food pantry the times I have gone there but once I donated some very nice shoes (cost over $75 originally) and got treated like crap while they gushed over someone who was bringing in a mountain of crap. Why be rude to someone who is bringing in a small amount of decent stuff for someone who is bringing in the kind of things thrift stores can't give away? Very disappointing.

You probably need to get over yourself. I'm sure they appreciated your shoes. Most of the volunteers probably have no idea what your shoes were worth. It's amazing how many "mountains of crap" that are sold in that place.

what does it take to qualify to receive food from there. I may be interested in signing up and would like to know if there is anything I might need to bring along to show or whatever it takes. Thanks

yes the volunteers put in alot of hours and hard work, but i think what most ppl are annoyed with is the fact that all the "nice" clothes and items never make it to the shelves...leaving mostly old worn out and out dated clothes...i volunteered at munch for awhile but stopped when i seen just how much the volunteers were taking for pennies....and of course it was all name brand expensive clothes and items. leaving the scraps and leftovers for those who could use a thrifty deal on a item they wldnt normally be able to afford. while the volunteers have more than enough income to go buy the item new. somebody donated those items to be sold cheap to someone less fortunate not someone who is simply greedy and justifies their actions with i work here for free so i deserve it...a true volunteer dosnt expect anything in return!!!! once in awhile i stop in at munch...its been years since ive bought anything due to the fact thats is always so picked over and finding something that wasnt a reject decades ago is damn near impossible...

It's easy to sit back moaning and groaning. What's hard is to get up off your butt and change things. If you don't like the way things are run....get in there and change it! Become a volunteer and make a difference. I'm sorry if these women who work many hours for no pay happen to get a good used shirt or a second hand skirt for "pennies" while you have to pay....what? fifty cents? Make better use of your time ladies.

Amen and AMEN! My kudos to those who volunteer there. They deserve any break they get. Can't be too bad shopping there. It's the busiest store in town. Drive by there any afternoon through the week. You're lucky if you can find a place to park.

This year munch donated food and toys to my family for Christmas. I don't care what anyone says, without the help of those volunteers my kids would have very very little for Christmas. God bless

Evidentally, you HAVEN'T shopped there recently. I have purchased lovely houseware, home decor and very nice clothing from there. You need to shop often to find the good stuff. The volunteers MAY have first dibs on the things that come in, but I don't think that they are stealing. Maybe some were, but they are gone, now. Oh, and do we HAVE socialites in Willow? That's very funny and interesting.

Love it! Love the people that run it and love the happy atmopshere. The MUNCH does more for this town than any business ever could During this economic crisis they have managed to keep their prices rock bottom and this community couldn't thank them enough, so I say God Bless them and may they have many, many years of success and support. I know I'll give it to them!
I think they do a wonderful job. And they even carry Albatross lips, if you need them.
