Max Browning, Grant Development Coordinator for Gleaners, said the Reid Health Community Benefit funds will support provision of fresh produce for 19 mobile pantries in Wayne County. “And also it will support the market style pantries,” Browning said. Joe Smith, Jefferson Township Trustee, said at a recent distribution in Hagerstown that their mobile pantry site alone program reaches up to 130 families a month.
“The need for the county is great,” Smith said, just after completing a distribution in the rain at a Hagerstown church. Browning and Smith said the service touches other nearby counties as well.
