Pantry in need of cereal

For Hometown News

MARTIN COUNTY -- Every year, The Salvation Army of Martin County assists hundreds of needy families through its Emergency Food Assistance program. In fact, The Salvation Army distributed over 191,000 pounds of food in 2012. However, a busier than usual summer has left our food pantry without one necessary staple - cereal.

The Salvation Army is asking the community to help put food on their neighbors' tables by the immediate and continued support of CEREAL and/or monetary donations to replenish this crucial Food Pantry item.

"Cereal is one of those items that most, if not all individuals benefit from, especially kids," said Lieutenant Scott Hoover, Corps Officer and Pastor for the Martin County Salvation Army. "It's a breakfast staple that children and adults alike enjoy. Therefore, cereal is an item that we try to make available for every family that comes to us for food assistance."

Donations of non-perishable foods can be delivered to 821 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Stuart, directly across from the Stuart police station. Financial donations are also accepted and if noted, will be used specifically for the food pantry.

For more information, call (772) 288-1471 or visit www.salvationarmystuart.org.
