Food insecurity expected to grow next year

The outreach coordinator for the Gathering Place says the city’s soup kitchen is just trying to fill a need in the community, one that Fay expects will grow in 2021.

“We have so many families who could benefit,” Fay says as she puts frozen pizzas and instant food items aside.

“Food insecurity comes in many shapes and forms. Some people have too much pride to use a food bank or soup kitchen and they just go without.”
