The L-C Food Pantry gets needed boost

After a successful food drive last weekend, the Luxemburg-Casco Marv Bins Food Pantry was able to restock its shelves during a crucial time of the year.  The "Fill the Shelves" event on Saturday was a drive-thru donation spot at St. Mary's Church parking lot in Luxemburg and Holy Trinity parish in Casco.  Director Jackie Peot says the food and money donations should keep the pantry stocked for the next few months.   She credits excellent community support for keeping the pantry continually stocked with food.



Peot adds that staples like soups, peanut butter, jams, canned vegetables, and fruits are useful items to donate.  She estimates that the Luxemburg-Casco Marv Bins Food Pantry benefits between 20 and 30 area families every month.  The pantry is currently open on the second and fourth Saturday of the month from 9 am until 11 am in Casco.  Starting on January 7, the pantry will also be available the first and third Thursday of the month from 5 pm until 7 pm for greater convenience for those who have to work.
