From Lydia (that's me), in Glocester, Rhode Island:
On a weekend filled with eating and cooking and celebrating family traditions, I asked Joe Peters to let us peek into the Town of Glocester's pantry.
Stored in a space the size of my kitchen, here's what was on hand last week, to be divided among the 80 families who use the food pantry.
Joe's wife, Virginia, is the director of human services in our town (population 10,000). Joe devotes countless hours as a volunteer to collect, sort and distribute food to the families who come to the food pantry every Wednesday.
If you have a moment, give the food pantry in your area a call and ask how you can help. Maybe you can collect non-perishable items from your neighbors, or donate gift cards from a local grocery store.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
