Rotary provides Food Pantry with peanut butter power

Rotary recently provided a grant to Laguna Food Pantry with which the nonprofit will purchase peanut butter to get them through the summer months to counter a double whammy: a predictable dip in manpower and food resources, just as summer school break means no federally subsidized lunches for the children of pantry shoppers.

“With this generous funding from the Rotary, we can make sure our shelves are stocked for the summer with plenty of protein-rich peanut butter for kids who are out of school,” noted Belyea.

Every weekday, Laguna Food Pantry collects and distributes 4,000 lbs of free, fresh groceries to approximately 80 families, half of whom have children. Located at 20652 Laguna Canyon Rd north of the Dog Park, the Pantry is open from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. It is run almost entirely by volunteers. For more information, visit www.lagunafoodpantry.org or call (949) 497-7121.
