Food pantries see more people in need



Area residents can use The Salvation Army’s food pantry by supplying: social security cards or proof of everyone living in the household, picture ID, proof of income and proof residency in Vermilion County.

Brooks encourages anyone who needs help to visit a food pantry.

“So many people feel ashamed to ask for help,” Brook said. Brooks said that if they can help with a couple sacks of groceries, people can use that extra money to fill their gas tank or for one of their bills.

“This is put on by community members to help our community because we just don’t know who’s going to be next.”
