Walnut Food Pantry increases summer giving
WALNUT — The Walnut Food Pantry has increased the amount of food distributed to families this summer to help handle increased food needs since children are home for the summer.
On Wednesday, Director Deanna Wilt said the numbers of families and individuals served through the Walnut Food Pantry has remained fairly steady this summer, in spite of children being out of school and not having schools breakfast and lunch programs. But, because children are not in school and therefore not having breakfast and lunch options through school, the food pantry has increased some of the items distributed during the summers, like cereal and lunch meat, Wilt said.
Also, to help supplement the Walnut Food Pantry during the busy summer months, the women’s group at Walnut’s First United Methodist Church has begun a support program which provides food bags for children. Each bag contains a breakfast item, lunch item, fruit, snack and juice for five days a week. Families register for the summer food bags through the Walnut Food Pantry. The food bags are picked up from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays at the church, Wilt said.
