Melloni's Market Place ceased operations in Youngstown last Saturday, having previously announced plans to relocate to the Town of Tonawanda.
As a generous parting gesture to the community, owners Lou and Diane Melloni donated a large number of foodstuffs they had remaining in their store to the Care-n-Share Food Pantry in nearby Ransomville.
In response, Inter-Community Services, the parent organization to Care-n-Share, said it was overwhelmed by the gracious offer.
"We are so appreciative that they thought to give the pantry all of this food! Our freezers and shelves are stocked by their generosity!" board member Lori Adamson said. "As saddened as we all are at the relocating of this small business, what a kind gesture. Lou and Diane are truly a class act!"
In the photos, Lou and Diane Melloni are shown outside the Youngstown store with a variety of food parcels they donated.
