Letter to the Editor: Wants to expand FeedMore services in Charles City

By Community Member | January 30, 2019 1:50 pm

Charles City County has the most amazing communities of people that move mountains.

I’ve witnessed folks coming together to donate food over the years to help feed our children on weekends and school breaks. I’ve seen young and old volunteers alike set up emergency food distribution once a month in the parking lot of St. John Baptist Church in the rain, cold, and exhausting heat.

FeedMore graciously provides much needed food and has offered to help us expand to another location. Help is needed to start a permanent food pantry in Charles City. A climate-controlled atmosphere is needed to offer pantry shopping at times that provides everyone who’s hungry with access. Once a month isn’t just enough.

It’s doable. It’s time. Who’s with me?
