LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - A little food donation can go a long way and the La Crosse Area Free Little Pantry held a food drive to help the community on Sunday.
The organization's chair Angela Manke said from $500 donations to loads of non-perishable food items, the drive proved that their organization is off to a great start at filling-free little community pantries.
Manke added that even as the pandemic subsides, food disparities will still exist.
"When the pandemic is over per-say we're going to still have food insecurity," Manke said. "It makes a difference to that one person. Even if someone is in need and they can only give out a couple extra items that item will mean something to someone so we can all do our little part because if we all do a little it adds up."
People can drop off any non-perishable food items inside little pantries as long as they are not in glass containers or require refrigeration.
People can also make monetary donations here.
