Food pantry help

Bob Ray Sanders’ heartfelt article, “Food Bank Needs Help Providing Holiday Meals” illustrates the growing need for food pantry provisions, especially during the holiday season.

The Community Food Bank ministry on Galvez Avenue deserves accolades for their efforts assisting families — at least 450 per day. As Sanders states in his article, the need has mushroomed from last year with 75 new clients registering every day.

Thanksgiving turkeys are needed for 2,600 families and Wal-Mart came to the rescue last year to make up the deficit. Who will step up to the plate this year?

The Community Food Bank receives food donations from major grocers to aid families, and also their pets. “Don’t Forget To Feed Me” Food Bank (for pets) is an added amenity to their food program.

Let’s join in the “Operation; Destination Turkey Dinner” and donate frozen turkeys..
