Food Pantry Opens on First, Third Evenings of Month

Responding to the needs of the community, the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry will be open on the first and third Tuesdays of the month, Social Services Director Fern Klemm announced today.

“The food pantry helps so many people each week, but we found that many others just aren’t able to get here during the daytime because they are working,” she said. “That’s when we recognized the need to open the food pantry from 5:00 8:00 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month.”

Klemm said response was strong on April 2, the first evening that the pantry was open.

“The food pantry is open to anyone who needs the help. We certainly expect to see more people as word spreads about the new hours,” she said.

The food pantry is located at 1426 Second Ave.
