According to Lorah, the food pantry helps an average of 90 families who shop at the pantry once a month. Donations are always welcome, particularly for household items such as laundry detergent, toilet tissue and toiletries. The pantry also can accept fresh items such as eggs, milk and produce, Lorah said.
