A bag sale at the Seneca County House of Concern, 35 State St. Seneca Falls, helps the organization with its difficult task of keeping the Food Pantry shelves stock. The sale runs through Friday and the store is open Monday-Friday: 9am – 3:45pm.
With the growing cost of food and the growing need in the community, the organization spent more than double the allotted budget last year to buy food. This year the numbers of people being served are going up even faster, and food prices show signs of further increases.
It’s a difficult time for everyone, but the neediest are often the hardest hit, and food pantries throughout the county are struggling to keep up.
The Bag sales, during which anyone shopping at the House of Concern Thrift Store can buy anything that will fit in a standard size shopping bag for just $7, helps raise funds to use at area grocery stores to supply the needs of those who cannot put food on the table.
“Often people believe that by shopping at our store, they are taking things away from people who need them. The truth is, what we need is food, and converting the items we have for sale into cash to buy food is a huge help for everyone. Plus it’s a great bargain! We have lots of items people have no idea you can find here,” says Executive Director Diane Draheim.
All six of the county food pantries are in urgent need of cash and food donations.
