food pantry hours
The Pelathe Community Resource Center, 15th and Haskell, is expanding its pantry hours to include Saturdays.
The pantry is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. It will now also be open 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
"Welfare reform, high utility costs and increasing food prices are bringing more and more working poor families into the center for food assistance," Pelathe director Dave Cade said. "We felt bad for people who couldn't make it in here during the workday."
The center may soon expand the hours further, Cade said, to include a weeknight.
