Food Pantry Plans Thanksgiving Distributions

Juniata County Food Pantry, the Kiwanis Club of Juniata County & the Boy Scouts are joining forces to bring Thanksgiving meals to Juniata County families in need. All the groceries to make up a Thanksgiving dinner will be handed out on Saturday Nov 17 between 2-4pm, at the CJEMS Building/Senior Center in Mifflintown. To qualify for the meal distribution families must be residents of Juniata County and present an ACCESS card, a 'statement of need' signed by a pastor, or be current clients of the Juniata County Food Pantry.

If you would like to help provide holiday meals, they are seeking the following donations: Turkeys, cranberry sauce, stuffing, canned fruits/veggies, canned sweet potatoes, gravy mix packets, and dessert mixes. Monetary/gift card donations are also appreciated.

For more info or questions, call the Juniata County Food Pantry at 436-9718. The pantry is located at 114 North Main Street in the old Stong's Auto Parts building. They are open Mondays & Wednesdays 2-6 and Saturdays 9-1, however donations may be left at any time in their vestibule.
