Salina Food Bank Reports Low Supplies
Associated Press - Wed 08:01 AM 10/31/2012
Officials at the Salina food bank say a marked increase in demand for services has cut into their supplies.
The Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank normally serves 20 to 30 people a day. But the food bank has been seeing those numbers go up and recently set a one-day record when 40 people came for meals.
Executive director Kathy Jackson says there have also been days when the number of people seeking food has topped 35. Jackson says the food bank has had to ration provisions to stretch its dwindling supplies.
The organization is hoping a fundraiser scheduled for Sunday will help alleviate the shortage.
