The cupboards are bare at the Community Services of Starke County Food Pantry. They are in need of canned fruits and vegetables, macaroni and cheese dinners, pancake mix, spaghetti noodles and all varieties of breakfast cereals.
In addition to food, they also give personal care items to low-income residents and are especially in need of toilet paper. Last month the food pantry received 7,341 pounds of food and distributed 8,388 to 841 people in 278 Starke County households. Donations can be dropped off at the Community Services of Starke County Office on Culver Road or at a number of participating local businesses.
