FOOD PANTRY NEEDS: There is a huge need for cereals at this time. They would prefer that you provide some healthier, less sugar types of cereals, but all types are welcome. Many grocery stores are having specials on cereals, including Giant. Check the local ads. The food pantry does not endorse any specific store or brand. A special thanks to St. Matthew’s for all of the contributions of food and money during the holiday season. Items can be placed in the shopping cart in the coat room at any time.
