Slater-Sheldahl Food Pantry

posted on Thursday, August 3, 2017

It's not often that you come across food pantry coordinators that also happen to be the founders of their local pantry, then again there aren't many people as kind and generous with their time as Judy and Craig Whitney.

“With the help of many local volunteers we have been able to keep this food pantry up and running for nearly 30 years now," explained Craig. "We absolutely couldn't do it without them."

Open even Wednesday, the Slater-Sheldahl Food Pantry has already served more than 39 low income and food insecure families throughout the months of May and June.

“Our freezers have been looking a little scarce lately, so this donation is so timely,” says Judy. "With kids out of school in the summer it's extremely difficult to make budgets and food stretch. It's a struggle for us, too."

Our Haul Out Hunger team recognizes that food pantries are historically low in the months on June and July, which is why we knew today would be the perfect opportunity to donate 24 pork loins, or 120 pounds of pork, to local families in need in the Slater and Sheldahl communities. #HaulOutHunger#BillionPlus
