Mobile food pantry to visit Gays Mills on Wednesday
Placeholder Image

The Second Harvest Mobile Food Pantry will be at the old Gays Mills Community Building at 212 Main Street on Wednesday, March 26.

Food will be distributed from 2 to 3 p.m. 

People struggling to make ends meet can come to the pantry to receive fresh and non-perishable food. Frozen meats, fresh and canned vegetables, breads, staples such a rice or noodles, and fruits are regularly available. Each household receives between 50 and 70 pounds of food. The food is free and varies each month. 

Patrons do not need to meet income guidelines or provide an ID. They will be asked to initial a registration sheet indicating they need food assistance. They must also provide the check-in volunteer with the number of people (including children and senior citizens) in the household, the name of the post office serving that household, and the manner by which they learned of the mobile pantry. 

People should bring sturdy bags, boxes, or baskets to hold the food they receive. Volunteers will assist by carrying food to vehicles as needed. Food for the homebound or others unable to come to the pantry may be picked up by friends or relatives.  No person may pick up more than one households allotment at a time.

Call Lorraine Fortney at 608-735-4690 or Cindy Kohles at 608-872-2184 if you have questions.
