WebWithEase has created a new website for the South County Food Pantry. The Web site is at www.southcountyfood

The site includes a list of items that the pantry needs and is also an information resource for clients and volunteers.

It includes a section for the Micah’s Backpack program, which donated 516 meals to elementary-age children in the area during the month of September.

More than 4,000 food items were donated to the pantry in September, including from Mount Nebo Christian Preschool, which held a canned soup and canned pasta drive during the month to support the program.
