Through the Sodexo Foundation's efforts to end domestic childhood hunger, Cindy Caggiano, General Manager of Sodexo Senior Living at Lutheran Care, presented a $1,000 check to the Country Pantry.

The Country Pantry is now in its 38th year and serves those in need in Clinton, Clark Mills, Westmoreland and New Hartford.

The number of families served on a regular basis has risen substantially over the years and  is currently at 161.

The pantry operates from the Church of the Annunciation in Clark Mills and those in need of support are encouraged to stop in.
