Members of the London High School girls varsity golf team gave back to their community recently by volunteering at the Madison County Food Pantry.


The girls boxed up meals and handed out food boxes to families on Saturday, Aug. 9.


The Madison County Food Pantry, operating since 1981, serves an average of 440 families and more than 1,400 individuals each month. Nearly 30 senior citizens who are unable to leave their homes have meals delivered to them each month from the pantry.


Funding for the pantry comes from 12 different churches, countless individuals, schools, organizations, businesses and the community as a whole.


In addition to meals, the pantry also provides every child who receives provisions from them with an age appropriate book of their choice. This program is geared to assist many children with building their imagination and reading skills.


The organization has no paid employees, and none of the volunteers or board members are compensated.


Current operating hours are from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday and Saturday.


To learn more about the pantry or to become volunteer or make a donation, call Jim Witwer at (614) 404-4718.
