Little Food Pantry Available to the Public

NEWSTEAD-A little food pantry is now available in the parking lot (next to the paper donation bin) of Trinity Lutheran Church at 4809 South Newstead road for those who have an immediate need for food or those who wish to donate.

From time to time, the people of our community may be in need of some essentials that they are not able to afford at the moment. This little pantry is available to help fill that need. This self-serve pantry is available for anyone in immediate need of nutritious food or hygiene items, 24 hours a day. Anyone can take items they immediately need, or donate whatever non-expired goods or hygiene items they can. Items in this pantry include non- perishable items such as: canned goods, cereal, mac and cheese, pasta, canned soups, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and more.

This Little Pantry is the Gold award project of Akron Girl Scout Audrey Smith who hopes to make the world a better place by promoting the availability of nutritious foods in the community.
