Weyerhaeuser Grant Supports Local Food Pantry

Weyerhaeuser’s Giving Fund Grant Award was recently given to the Cane River Food Pantry.

Weyerhaeuser supports communities where they have a significant presence or business interest. They concentrate the majority of their giving fund in affordable housing and shelter, education and youth development, environmental stewardship, and human services, civic, and cultural growth.

The Cane River Food Pantry applied for the grant to be able to purchase a refrigerator so they could grow their outreach to the community. Being able to add a refrigerator to the food pantry gives the pantry a chance to receive eggs, cheese, and other items from the USDA for free and those items will be a great addition to the pantry’s distribution to our community.

The Cane River Food Pantry would like to thank Weyerhaeuser for the grant, the community for support financial and through volunteer hours, and Lynda Hammett for writing the grant.

If you are in need of assistance please contact the food pantry at 318-357-8296 or come by the offices at 220 Amulet on Tuesdays from 10-12. If you or a group your in are interested in volunteering or supporting the food pantry please contact us.
