Local food pantry in need of repairs, monetary donations

The St. Susanne Food Pantry was established by the Ministerial Alliance about 1986. It serves the Mt. Vernon School District which is roughly Mt. Vernon, Stotts City, Chesapeake area, and Freistatt.
Although more than 400 families are signed up to receive food, approximately 225 have been coming monthly. That is about 600 individuals monthly depending on family sizes. With the current COVID-19 crisis this may change. Many clients do work but still qualify through government guidelines of poverty levels.
At the present time, one of the walk-in freezers is inoperable and needs repairs. Physical donations of food, bags, and egg cartons have been stopped to keep volunteers and clients safe. Consider supporting the food pantry with a financial donation which can be used to purchase food from Ozark Food Harvest and repair the freezer. The pantry would like to thank the community for continued support.
Monetery donations can be sent to: St Susanne Food Pantry, P.O. Box 126, Mt Vernon, MO 65712.
