Bennington Community Teams Up to Create Temporary Food Pantry

The Bennington community has joined together to create a food pantry located at St. John’s Lutheran Church for families in need. You can help in three ways:

1) Donate food items for the pantry. Please bring non-expired food items during the times listed below. There is access to the school coolers so refrigerated items like yogurt, butter, etc. are also accepted. The pantry is also in need of diapers, Gentlease baby formula, and foods high in protein.

2) Make a monetary donation at https://www.benningtoncoc.org/community. All donations will be used to buy gift cards to our local food establishments for families and fill any gaps the pantry may have.

3) Volunteer your time and work at the pantry. Sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040848afaa23a7f58-bennington
