In June, Mariettans were appalled to learn of the burglary of food from The Gospel Mission Food Pantry. Thankfully, those responsible were quickly apprehended, and the community gave donations to replace that which had been lost. I am so proud to live in a community that responds quickly when help is needed. However, the need continues to grow and help is again needed. I am so grateful for all the food pantries in the area but wish to provide some pertinent information about The Gospel Mission Food Pantry. It differs from the other agencies in that it does not limit the number of times a person may come for food. Food will be given at any time a hungry person asks. The Gospel Mission Food Pantry also does not refuse people who come from areas outside a certain vicinity. If someone is hungry, that person will receive food. As Director Candy Waite said, "The spirit leads us to feed them when they come through the door."
