Beaver, WV- Unable to operate, a local food pantry in Raleigh County has to move locations. The food pantry tends to serve its clients from the School of Harmony Building at 159 Granby Circle.

Unfortunately, the building owner has only 30 days to find a new location to set up the food pantry and operate it. The food pantry also had multiple set-ups with their box truck for distribution in the meantime.

Going through this time, all that matters the most for the food pantry is that they continue to feed the community.

President of Lunchbox Food Pantry Lester said, “We know how much the lunchbox means to them and how much they mean to us and how much they depend on us. We definitely do not want to take that away from them and we would really, really like to stay local.”

The next set-up of the Lunchbox food pantry will be at Shady Baptist Church on July 29, 2023.
