Caring community brings load to local pantry

Tuesday, April 28, 2020

An extra load of goods for The Well Food Pantry at Good News Community Church in Okoboji came by way of some local kindness Thursday afternoon. Dave Kuker Trucking of Spirit Lake volunteered to pick up several pallets of food for the pantry which were ordered from the Food Bank of Iowa in Des Moines. Bomgaars of Spirit Lake provided a forklift to get the pallets to the ground for church volunteers. The local food pantry which began curbside pickup of pre-boxed groceries on March 21 is typically open twice a month but has been working with the Dickinson County Hunger Coalition to secure extra shipments of food and open its doors each Saturday through the end of May in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
