Letter to the Editor: Food Pantry Prepping for Summer Slow Season

Did you know there are hungry and hurting people right here in Anthem and our community immediately beyond? The St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry operates to help them. The pantry serves people in need regardless of age, religion or ethnic group.

In the past 15 months, the pantry has served more than 1,600 people, and we expect those numbers to continue to grow. Summer is always a very busy time for the service― kids in need are not receiving free breakfasts and lunches at school, snowbirds are gone, and many people vacation elsewhere to escape the heat. That means that the pantry’s needs are larger and its supporters are fewer.

Current needs: pancake mixes, syrup, jelly, canned fruits, applesauce, canned chili, pasta sauce, SpaghettiOs (or similar), baked beans, canned chicken. The pantry does not accept expired food items. Toilet paper is needed, too.
