EMPTY: Local food pantry revamps its ministry to families

September 8, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — Grace Lutheran Church has had a food pantry ministry for a number of decades, but a dwindling amount of donations is causing the church to come up with a different way to help people.
Church officials said there has been a reduction in funds and donations to the amount of 75 percent, compared to last year.
The church could have opted to close its doors completely, but an alternative will soon be offered. A voucher system, made in part by the Community Harvest Food Bank in Fort Wayne, is the church’s answer to the growing need to feed the hungry.
