The Aransas Pass community food program is in need of donations. These food pantries were set up near the middle and high school to collect *and distribute food donations. It was started as a way to help out those in need after Hurricane Harvey.
But now the pantry program is running low on donations because of a summer slump. Donations of non-perishable food and toiletry items are needed.
"Things that they need on a daily basis and they know that others may not have. They can come put it in here, again as long as it’s not perishable and it’s going to stay good for a week or so in here, you’re probably pretty good about it," said organizer, Wayne Bennett.
The school says that food usually only lasts about a week so regular restocking is crucial for the pantry program to continue.
