Mini Food Pantries in Holt Helping Families
No one anywhere should ever have to go hungry. I have always liked joining causes over the years helping the homeless and feeding the hungry. Two great causes, and a great way to give back to your community. Have you ever helped serve food at a shelter? Not only is it fun to talk to everyone, but it's a great way to give back. And what a great feeling that you're doing something so worthwhile and brightening someone's day.
I saw this story about mini food pantries in Holt on fox47news.com. I guess this started as a great way to feed children and families in Holt when the pandemic hit, and it has since become a HUGE part of the community. Delhi Township started with just 2 mini food pantries. And now there are 10.
The man behind the project is township Supervisor John Hayhoe. When COVID-19 hit hard, grocery shelves were bare, children were learning from home, which meant no free and reduced meals at school.

From there they moved on with more pantries, one is on Bishop Road and the other in Windmill Park. Now that we are seeing light at the end of the tunnel with vaccines, and numbers significantly dropping in Michigan, lets hope the pantries will continue to help Holt and other communities.
Another great way to give is with the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
