continued People can come to the pantry once a month to get three days — nine meals — food.
Besides helping feed families, the pantry responds to local emergencies such as fires and floods.
The Ti Food Pantry has a wide range of foods, including infant formula and baby food. It also offers personal hygiene items such as soap and laundry detergent.
The Ti pantry is operated by a group of about 25 volunteers. A member of the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, the local pantry depends on local food drives and donations.
Also helping stock the pantry are food drives each year by local civic, youth, school and church groups. The annual Canadian Pacific Holiday Train also raised money and collects food donations for the pantry.
Beuerlein hopes all eligible people take advantage of the services offered by the food pantry.
