Mitchell Food Pantry Looking for Produce

The Mitchell Food Pantry is looking to add more fresh produce to its shelves. Food Pantry president Beverly Rowley says that thanks to a walk-in cooler that was donated by County Fair food store, the center can now keep produce and other cold items longer for those in need. The center is asking area gardeners to plant extra produce to be donated. Rowley says that a section of the city-managed community garden has also been designated for the food pantry. Fresh produce items such as peppers, beans, tomatoes, and onions are needed.

The Food Pantry was founded by the Mitchell Ministerial Association back in 1983 and serves about 670 area residents per month.
