A combination of continued high demand and the usual summer decrease in donations have left the SERVE Food Pantry’s shelves almost entirely bare.
“We’re pretty low (on food),” SERVE, Inc. Executive Director Lisa Brown said. “We’ve made a food purchase to get something on the shelves and we’re trying to get some drives generated to supplement that.”
Brown said the food pantry served 2,307 people in June while at the same time not bringing in sufficient donations to help keep up supplies, which she said is typical for this time of year.
