Southern Platte County Emergency Assistance Center (SPEAC)

SPEAC provides a food pantry serviced by volunteers to low income families in Southern Platte County.  Last year the Harvest Ball Society generously provided funding for a new industrial refrigerator and freezer (shown in the photograph) enabling the pantry to provide nutritious foods, such as eggs, butter, vegetables, healthy fish (tilapia, salmon and cod) and a variety of meats (chicken, beef and pork). 

Recent comments from patrons of the food pantry include:
  1. We appreciate that we get to choose what food we want and will use.
  2. Thank you for providing healthy food.
  3. I love salmon and cannot afford to buy it.
  4. I cannot tell you how much your support helped me and my family when I was unemployed.  I now have a job and hope not to need you in the future.
  5. I appreciate the SPEAC food pantry.
  6. Can I really have a beef roast?  I do not know when I last had a roast.
  7. I am not sure how my family would survive without your help.
  8. Thank you for providing food when we need it.
  9.  While laid off from work, the pantry was a lifesaver.
