WESTERNPORT - The Tri-Towns Ministerial Association has been setting up mobile food pantries at various locations to help distribute food and information to those in need.
The first was July 19 in Elk Garden, in cooperation with the West Virginia Mountaineer Food Bank, and the second was held in Kitzmiller, Maryland.
The most recent was set up in Westernport, and served approximately 190 households with fresh produce and such shelf-stable items as peanut butter, pasta, canned fruit, tuna, etc.
In addition to the food giveaway, a number of agencies were set up to offer information on such topics as the WIC program, SNAP, Imagination Library, and more.
Future mobile pantries will be set up in Elk Garden under the direction of mayor Marian Droppleman.
