Pantry, shelves will be full this week after one donation in particular. A family took their children shopping to select food to fill their pick-up truck.

They all arrived carrying multiple bags and volunteers went back out for more. After several trips to the truck, the OOB Community Food Pantry hallway was overflowing.

Mary Ann Goldman was using a teaching moment to give from the heart with thanks for what they already have. Items needed include boxes of pasta, cans of vegetables or jars of peanut butter. At least

200 households of underemployed families, disabled veterans and senior citizens depend on the food to supplement their cupboards.

The OOB Community Food Pantry is located at 155 Saco Ave. in Old

Orchard Beach. Donations are accepted Monday 2 to 7 p.m., Tuesday 9 a.m. to noon and Thursday 9 a.m. to noon.
