Food Pantry Volunteers Celebrated


pantryvolunteers


The volunteers of the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry were celebrated at a luncheon at St. John’s Episcopal Church Wednesday to honor their efforts in feeding our community’s hungry children and families.

Joe Micon, LUM executive director, and Rev. Bradley Pace, St. John’s Episcopal Church rector, attended the event; and remarks were offered by Steve Starks, St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry director. In 2015, these wonderful food pantry volunteers served 2,879 Tippecanoe County households who were in need of emergency food. Join us in thanking our Food Pantry Volunteers for their service to our community.
