The Pulaski County Human Services Food Pantry is in need of supplies to help many families in need.
The food pantry staff helped 135 families totaling 404 people in the month of May. That’s 16,968 pounds of food. According to Pulaski County Human Services officials, the commodities from the Lafayette Food Bank are minimal so community support is key.
Needed items include canned fruit, canned vegetables, fruit cups, jelly, peanut butter, saltine crackers, margarine, potato flakes and pasta. Other donations needed are diapers, shampoo, deodorant, paper products and other toiletry items.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible monetary donation, stop by the facility at 115 W. Pearl Street in Winamac or call (574) 946-6500. Mail your donation to PCHS, P.O. Box 32, Winamac, IN, 46996.
