WILLIAMSPORT - The Williamsport Food Bank is in desperate need of food and monetary donations, said Mary Anna Kline, coordinator of the bank.
The food bank at 35 W. Potomac St. has enough money to buy food for its customers through about the end of July, Kline said.
"We're pretty well out of food and our funds will be depleted within 30 days," Kline said. "We'll take anything."
The bank's annual Harvest Hoedown fund-raiser in October and regular donations from area churches usually cover operating costs for the year, Kline said, but a drastic increase in the number and size of families using the food bank has led to its current food and financial shortfall.
"We've seen an increase in the number of families we serve every year, but this year it's much worse," Kline said.
