Community Helps After Food Pantry Shelves Go Bare

A local food bank saw some of their shelves go bare after two dozen families turned to them for help in one day.

For decades the Ministerial Outreach Food Bank has been serving the people of Havelock in Craven County. Just last week some of their shelves went bare when 20 families turned to them for help.

Director Carolyn Mewborn says word quickly spread around Havelock that they were in need of food and their shelves were quickly refilled.

Mewborn says since she began working at the food bank four-and-a-half years ago she has seen the need for food assistance in the community double.

    theere is no need for the shelves to even get low. Most people buy groceries at least once a week. Grocery stores always have specials. It dosen't have to be name brand. Pick up extra, every little bit helps. Who knows there may come a time when you need assistance. God bless all the people that were willing to restock the pantry.
