Mobile food pantry stop is canceled

December 23, 2009


The Ballard Community Services mobile food pantry scheduled for today is canceled because a key organizer is ill.

The pantry was scheduled to be at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds. The monthly food pantry will return in January, said Paul Youk, Ballard’s director of human services.

Youk said the organizer has been hospitalized, and other Ballard staff members are busy this week with the Holiday Bureau program.

Thank you Smitty. Although we could not coordinate the mobile food pantry for 800 people this month with our key person in the hospital, we are handing out as much food at both of our food pantries as we possibly can to supplement. With the holiday bureau program we are also providing extra where we can. It was just impossible with three staff members on site to do both monumental projects. We will ensure that the mobile food pantry is in operation in January.

What if my family could come up today and man it? Would that help?
