Donation helps feed more than 600 families

On Saturday, May 18th  Bishop Todd Kabalan presented a $2500 donation from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the Joe LeBlanc Food Pantry.  The food pantry opened in 2007 and has expanded over the years to help feed over 600 families a month in and around Minden.  Jessica Lewis, the director for Joe LeBlanc Food Pantry, estimated that the donation would help feed over 600 families for the next two and a half months.  Charris Glass, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was one of many volunteers present for the donation.  In describing her experiences she stated, “Having the privilege to serve at the Joe LeBlanc Food Pantry was a remarkable experience.  It was fun interacting with the recipients not only by helping put food in their carts, but also during the trips to their car to deliver it.  Some enjoyed silence while others enjoyed having a prayer with you or a simple hug.”

Volunteer opportunities are available on the 3rd Saturday of every month.  See https://www.joeleblancfoodpantry.com for more information on how to get involved.
