Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Melissa Prins

If you haven’t had a chance to stop by Tabitha’s Way in Span­ish Fork, you will be sur­prised to see all of the changes go­ing on. At the end of March, they pur­chased the old Fritzi’s build­ing, which has more re­cently been known as Blue Ta­ble Painting.

Now, as they look for­ward to five months of con­struc­tion, they will be work­ing out the kinks as they make the tran­si­tion to be­com­ing a Client Choice pantry on April 18 at their cur­rent lo­ca­tion at 140 N. Main in Span­ish Fork.

The whole staff is very en­thu­si­as­tic about this change. Not only does it mean that there will be more nu­tri­tious food op­tions for their clients, but it will also give their pa­trons con­trol of their food choices. The new Tabitha’s Way pantry will be set up like a small gro­cery store. There will be aisles stocked with canned goods, fresh pro­duce, re­frig­er­a­tors with dairy prod­ucts, freez­ers with meat op­tions and so much more. Each client will be able to grab a gro­cery cart and choose their food at each visit.

The pantry will have new hours to ac­com­mo­date their clients and are ac­tively seek­ing new vol­un­teers to come and be shop­ping as­sis­tants, in­take rep­re­sen­ta­tives, mar­ket stock­ers and so much more. As of April 18, the new pantry hours will be as fol­lows: Tues­days: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Wed­nes­days, Thurs­days and Fri­days: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sec­ond and fourth Satur­days: 10 a.m. to noon. Closed Sun­days and Mon­days.

If you are in­ter­ested in help­ing or learn­ing more about the ser­vices Tabitha’s Way has to of­fer, please call Melissa today at 801-709-8573 or send an email to info.

Tabitha’s Way is re­design­ing its food pantry to make it op­er­ate more like a gro­cery store, giv­ing its clients more nu­tri­tious op­tions and more con­trol over their food choices.
