The Care and Share Food Pantry, which serves families in the Lewiston, Youngstown, Ransomville and Wilson areas, recently held a volunteer appreciation luncheon at Knead the Dough Restaurant. A special award was presented to Debbie Parker, owner of Knead the Dough.
"This food pantry is in existence today, because of Debbie Parker," remarked Joanne Whitney, food pantry administrator. Parker was one of the leading forces who spearheaded the pantry more than two years ago.
Whitney notes that volunteers are still needed at the pantry, which is open to the public on Thursdays from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Those would like to volunteer at the pantry should call 716-791-3855, option 2. The pantry is located at the Free Methodist Church, 3924 Ransomville Road, Ransomville.
