Food Pantry issues summer reminder

[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

The Wellesley Food Pantry is asking people to remember to clean out their pantries and cupboards before going away this summer, especially for items that are close to their expiration dates.

The Food Pantry relies on the community's generosity to support the needs of the 400+ Wellesley residents who utilize the pantry. Summer is a more lean time for the pantry, as many people are away, so donations tend to drop; however, the Food Pantry’s need does not abate and is actually more acute for some of the children (one-third of the pantry’s clientele) who will not have access to reduced-price or free meals from the schools.
