One of the most popular aisles in the food pantry is the one that these ladies work in...they are known as the “Sweet Treats”. Today we introduce you to Ruth, Char, Karen, Jan, Melissa and Joan. They have volunteered a combined 20 years at the pantry. The aisle that they work in offers our clients many choices such as condiments, baking supplies, and sweet snacks. This department is always in need of staple items such as ketchup and mustard; and flour, sugar and cooking oil are always in short supply. We are happy to be able to provide these items year round. Thank-you to these “sweet” ladies for a job well done and your years of service. ... See more
