Whitehall Food Pantry in need of donations

T he Whitehall Food Pantry needs your help.

“Donations had started to pick up but now they have fizzled out in the last couple of weeks,” said Mark Koeble, director of the pantry.

He said the pantry is in need of a variety of nonperishable food items to help replenish its stock.

The items most in need include: peanut butter, boxed cereal, boxed macaroni and cheese, canned soup, canned fruit, pasta and canned pasta sauce.

Monetary donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase food for the pantry.

Koeble said all donations are much appreciated and will help feed hungry local families this fall and winter.

For more information, or to arrange a time to drop off items, contact Koeble at 499-0917.

Items can also be dropped off in donation boxes at Village Sunoco, Community Bank and Great Meadow Federal Credit Union in Comstock from Oct. 26 through Nov. 8.
