Rose Gray, former food pantry coordinator

For individuals and families that have turned to Hilltop’s Village Food Pantry in Valparaiso to help make ends meet, everything’s coming up roses, especially if they had the opportunity to be served with a warm smile by Rose Gray, the food pantry coordinator for 12 years.

“Rose was the epitome of the type of person that worked tirelessly to provide help to those community members in need,” said Jennifer Wright, CEO, Hilltop Neighborhood House. “Rose and her husband, Rich, did it all.  They worked with Opportunity Enterprises’ clients to help fill the food orders, collected donations from local vendors and churches, and passed out food at the pantry. These are the type of volunteers that can make any program successful.”

In honor of Gray, who passed away on March 10, the Village Food Pantry will be officially renamed the “Rose Gray Hilltop Food Pantry.”

When Wright spoke with Gray at the VNA Hospice Center a mere days before her passing, they talked about the food pantry. Wright asked if she had any words of wisdom for Hilltop moving forward. Gray’s reply about the people she has served through the years was to “remember: they are people, not papers.”

The Rose Gray Hilltop Food Pantry serves approximately 400 individuals every month, year-round.  In 2013, the food pantry served a record high of 900 individuals, with the number continuing to grow.

The panty is located at 604 E. Monroe St. (behind Union Community Church) in Valparaiso. The pantry accepts perishable and non-perishable food items. Donations are always needed and appreciated.
