Food pantries need support

I volunteer at a local food pantry, serving clients who have less than I have. Each week we serve more than 100 families.

Recently school let out for summer vacation, and children who received free or low-cost lunches will now have to eat that meal at home. We will serve more families at the pantry this summer.

Recently we had the postal carriers’ food drive, but due to the rain that day. most people did not put out donations. We were very thankful for everything we got; however, we received one-third of what we usually receive.

I urge people to continue to support the local food pantries throughout the summer. I have a small garden and any extra produce I have will go to Interfaith Food Pantry, as they take any and all donations.

Please continue to donate food to a food pantry, any of them. I sincerely thank people for we at the pantries are so very thankful for every donation.
