Neighborhood Center Food Pantry ‘running on E’

October 17, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Fill your belly, feed the hungry. The Marshall County Neighborhood Center (MCNC) is asking you to think about those in need the next time you visit the grocery store.

They are getting about half of what they normally get. The way we have been hit lately, I think we can get maybe two or three pantry times done before we are completely out of food.”
