BREWER – More people than usual are relying on local food pantries.
Now, the Brewer Area Food Pantry is asking for your help.
This Saturday, August 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., they’ll have a school bus in the Brewer Hannaford parking lot.
People can come drop off donations of non-perishable food items.
Their hope is to fill the bus with the food items so they can better serve their community.
“The increase need of food has risen because we’re taking a lot of people in that we normally wouldn’t because the unemployment rate and everything else,” said Joshua Paige, a community support supervisor for OHI.
The Brewer Area Food Pantry serves those living in Brewer and Eddington.
They’ll also be accepting monetary donations.
