A good dinner on Easter Sunday was provided to hundreds of families thanks to local residents and the Cache Community Food Pantry. Those who could not afford to buy their own food still had a great meal.
Pantry Director Matt Whittaker says between 300 and 400 families came to the pantry on Tuesday to pick up their Easter food. He says there was plenty for all who came.
“We’re doing great,” Whittaker says of the food pantry. “We were able to give out hams this year to the families that came for food. We were able to tell them this is your Easter ham that has been donated by the community. They were very tickled to take a ham home to their family.”
Whittaker says in addition to those who come to the pantry, food is also given to local senior centers, and other non-profits such as CAPSA and Cache Employment and Training Center to name a few.
He is particularly thanking those who gave to the Scout Drive last week and says the Letter Carrier drive will be coming up in May. Whittaker says it all helps to get people through the summer and he is grateful for that help.
