With the cold weather becoming an expectation, the holiday season is just around the corner. Regardless of how it is celebrated, a holiday usually involves a ton of delicious food. But as can happen, many families cannot afford to splurge on food and goodies. In many instances, the bare minimum is a struggle. This is recognized in Kittson County, and the food pantries are looking to fill that need.
“The Care & Share Pantry in Lake Bronson has been in operation for 20 years,” says Darlene Brown, who has been in charge of the pantry for a fair number of those years. “We’ve got clothes, some furnishings, and lots of food.” The Care & Share Pantry is situated right next to the grocery story in Lake Bronson.
The US Customs and Border Patrol in Lancaster recently participated in a competition designed to raise food and money for food pantries. When some of them found out that they had local food pantries that needed donations, they gave half to Care & Share in Lake Bronson, and half to the Cornerstone Food Pantry in Hallock.
