The local food bank that serves Commerce needs more room. Commerce Food Pantry Inc. board president Dennis White told the city council at a Jan. 21 meeting that the agency has outgrown its current space, according to a report in The Commerce Journal.
White told the council that Commerce Food Pantry serves 45-50 families weekly, or about 200 people monthly. The food bank is open Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the First United Presbyterian Church on Monroe Street.
COMMERCE - The Commerce Food Pantry had been running dangerously low on supplies. So the last few Sundays before worship volunteer Dennis White has stood before his fellow church members to remind them of the growing need to restock the shelves.
