Perhaps the rainy day kept the numbers steady . . . perhaps a bit (or a bit+) of fear with the restrictions deadline arriving at midnight.
Judi H. shared two of her concerns:
  • Loss of pantry volunteers for fear of exposure, especially since people have tested positive in Hancock County
  • Although we have enough food for distribution for next week, we are counting on a Good Shepherd delivery of pre-packed boxes for next week’s staples
Volunteers pack about 100 boxes on Wednesday in preparation for Thursday. The balance are packed as pantry users deplete Wednesday’s work.  Two solid days of hard work with fewer workers on which to depend.
