Julian Blessing Box - A Free Pantry

Food insecurity affects nearly every one at some point in our lives. It can be a very difficult situation to find yourself in. The Julian community decided to come together & do something about it. Help support some of the less fortunate families in the Backcountry during their time of need. You can help by donating food items at anytime & you’ll find our little pantry at Wynola Pizza & Bistro. Special thanks to Wynola Pizza & Bistro, JCFPD, Candied Apple & everyone else that supported this effort. Thank you Heather Dawn.
