The Taylorville Food Pantry has been given a number of different grants, according to co-coordinator Amy Hagen, that have had a huge impact on what the Food Pantry has been able to offer.
The lease on those temporary units ended and the Food Pantry was given a grant for a new freezer and refrigeration unit that is being used to store whatever they have a need for, according to Hagen.
The Taylorville Food Pantry, like food pantries across the United States, have been extremely busy recently and Hagen went on to say that they were blessed with a large donation from Bob Ridings of 200 turkeys that they were able to pass out to the individuals and families that they serve.
The Taylorville Food Pantry set a new record last week, according to Hagen, feeding over 140 families in a single night.
