More donations, more needs for food pantry
SPRING VALLEY — The Hall Township Food Pantry may receive more in the way of donations during the holiday season, but the needs are also greater at this time of the year, according to Jan Martin, director of the Hall Township Food Pantry.
Though there could be several reasons for the increased need during the holidays, one possible reason could be more people are using the food pantry during the holidays because they are using some of their money to buy Christmas gifts and don’t have as much money for food, Martin said.
In November, the food pantry served 313 families, which represented 937 individuals. The food pantry also distributed 297 Thanksgiving baskets, representing 790 individuals. The Thanksgiving basket distribution was done on a nice weather day, so more senior citizens came out. If the weather is cold, seniors don’t come out as much, she said.
