The West Deerfield Township Food Pantry has $13,088 more in its coffers to feed those in need in the community.
Whole Foods Market handed representatives of the Pantry a check for $13,088 Wednesday as part of its Grab and Give Program to use part of its November and December proceeds to feed the hungry.
The donation this year more than doubled the $6,052.98 generated a year ago. West Deerfield Township Food Pantry President Rob Rosenbacher was thrilled with the donation.
“The Food Pantry is overwhelmed by the support of Whole Foods and the West Deerfield Township Community,” Rosenbacher said. “This years’ program brought more than double the amount of the previous year. Thanks to all for providing support for the over 200 individuals receiving food support.”
