Sidney Elks Lodge BPOE # 1782 presented a check for $1500 to the Richland County Food Bank last week for which food bank president Cassandra Markwald expressed her deep gratitude. The money will go to purchase hamburger and other food items as needed.

The Richland County food bank board would like to thank our community of donors for filling the shelves. The food bank relies on the community to support those in need. We have had a busy 2018! We are looking forward to 2019. We are looking for volunteers to help stock shelves, greet clients and fill baskets. We have had a year of blessings from our churches, individuals, children, families, grocery stores and businesses. This Christmas churches helped us fill 100 baskets for the seniors and disabled in our community. We have assisted through community support 978 adults, 582 children and distributed 45,270 pounds of food.

The Richland County Food Bank would not exist without committed, continued community support. Support for the food bank comes in many forms. Our county commissioners provide the space we call home. The helping hands include youth groups from area schools, local service organizations and church youth groups. The food bank depends on businesses like Sidney Sugars, Town Pump, Reynolds Market, Reese & Rays IGA and Richland County media. Random acts of kindness and monetary donations keep our shelves full and volunteers keep the doors open for service to our community.

Currently the food bank is in need of canned carrots, instant potatoes and mixed fruit.

We are open on Mondays and Thursdays by appointment. Thank you for your continued support.
