Food Pantry Opening in Guyandotte

Updated 5 years ago by Tony Rutherford HuntingtonNews.Net Reporter

Due to the high demand between Altizer and Milton, the Grace Food Pantry has opened at Buffington Street across from the box factory. Connie Miller, who will operate the pantry,  stressed that "the need is great and it is getting worse" during a pre-Huntington City Council meeting interview January 28.

"If you need food, come and see us," said Miller, whose pantry operates with assistance from the Huntington Food Bank. They are looking for both food and monetary donations to help those in need.

Ms. Miller has opened the pantry as an opportunity to give back. A breast cancer survivor who cares for a son suffering  the lingering inner wounds of post traumatic stress disorder following service in the Middle East, the mother would in the future like to give back further to cancer survivors and veterans. Noting that "we have to take in veterans who are struggling," she hopes to have the pantry open Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
