Needline Asking for Fresh Fruits, Vegetables
By WestKyStar Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - If your vegetable garden is coming in and you have more of certain veggies than you can eat or give to neighbors, consider sharing some of that bounty with needy local residents.
The Mayfield-Graves County Needline & Food Pantry welcomes fresh vegetables and fruit from local gardens and orchards. You may drop off your extra vegetables and fruit Monday through Thursday, 8 am to l pm at the Pantry at 424 S. 9th St., next to Stone’s Drugs.
“The Pantry mainly provides staple food items to local needy families so fresh produce is very welcome and helps round out our food sacks,” said Jackson Herndon, Pantry Director. “Many of our clients are elderly, disabled or live in apartments and cannot have gardens so these fresh vegetables and fruit are very much appreciated.” The organization currently serves about 350 families a month.
The Mayfield-Graves County Needline & Food Pantry is a faith-based non-profit organization that provides emergency food supplies and help with utilities and medical issues for Mayfield and Graves County families in a crisis.
For more information, call 270-247-6333 Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 1 pm.
