Food drop helps hundreds in need this holiday season

  • 0

PINCKNEYVILLE (WSIL) -- During the holidays there is more awareness of those in need and many people want to give.

The Least of the Brethren food pantry worked to help the community Friday.

They held a food drop, which provided around $350-$500 worth of food to families in need.

The food was distributed to the pantry by the St. Louis Area Food Bank.

Organizers say this is their way to bless families during the holidays.

"We are here to feed people until the end," said pantry founder George Culley. "A hungry stomach doesn't discriminate. If you're red, white, yellow, black, when you're hungry you're hungry. It doesn't care what your color of skin is."

Least of the Brethren will hold another food giveaway, but a voucher will be required.

Weather permitting, food will be handed out on January 28, 2021, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

You can contact the pantry for information on how to get a voucher by calling 618-357-9530.
