Community Supports Food Pantry

The community supported the Cane River Food Pantry greatly during the Thanksgiving holidays. The food pantry received lots of donations from collections around town and several groups helped organize the food pantry.

The Cane River Food Pantry would like to thank the following groups:

St. Mary’s school did a school wide food drive and donated a van full of food.

The Girls Scout troops of 546, 1209, 462, 765, and 1512 collected food and spent a Saturday morning in the food pantry organizing the donations. Also scouts Piper Foshee and Molly Morris collected over $100 to donate to the food pantry.

Central Louisiana Technical Community College had a food drive on campus.

NSU African American Caucus collected food during an event and donated it to the food pantry.

Asbury United Methodist Church donated food as well.

A group of children from first to sixth grade and parents from First Baptist Church brought food and worked on a Saturday morning sorting it.

Also, the Cub Scouts Troop #60 collected food for the pantry.

The Cane River Food Pantry would like to thank these groups and the continuous support the pantry receives from the community.
