  • Food is available to those in need

    To the editor:

    Last week you printed a letter concerning a lady not getting help when she needed it. This upset me, so I jumped in trying to locate this lady, which I did with the help of another person. I have talked with her, and we got everything straightened out. She was in the dark about where and whom she could turn to and the person who refused her help must have been in the dark also.

    The Food Pantry has no financial guidelines for getting food and the only time one is refused food is when it is being abused and never if children are involved.
