Woodforest Charitable Foundation donates $500 to the Wayne County Food Pantry Program
WAYNE COUNTY, PA- Woodforest Charitable Foundation makes a $500 donation to the Wayne County Food Pantry Program.
The Wayne County Food Pantry Program is sponsored through County Government. It is operated under the leadership of the Wayne County Pantry Board which is comprised of private citizens. Board members are also coordinators at each of the pantry sites. The Wayne County Pantry Program has five sites located in Honesdale, Lakeville, Newfoundland, Lakewood, and Damascus.
The Wayne County Food Pantry Program provides nutritious shelf staples which may supplement the applicant's food budget on a regular monthly basis. The food items vary, and are dependent upon what may be available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, what food has been privately donated, and what may be purchased with available funds and monetary donations. Typically, a monthly food bag will contain canned fruit, meat, vegetables, potatoes, spaghetti, etc.
“We are very grateful for all of the support we receive from our community-minded groups and individual concerned about the welfare of their neighbors,” said Kathleen Terry, Coordinator for the Wayne County Food Pantry Program. “Thank you so much for your generous donation.”
