The Good Samaritan Food Pantry will be holding an open house and ribbon cutting on Oct. 6 from 1-3 p.m. to showcase their expanded facility located at the Adel United Methodist Church, 115 S. 10th St. in Adel.
The pantry moved across the hall to a larger room to allow clients the ability to shop for their own food from an approved list and select the items that work best for themselves.
Due to this expanded space and specific donations, the pantry was able to add an additional freezer and large refrigerator. The additions mean more fresh items including eggs, dairy, and produce.
Volunteers keep the pantry running and donations from individuals as well as organizations continue stock the shelves.
Anyone who is interested in visiting the improved location is welcome to attend the event.
