Cars lined up for food pantry

Vehicles are shown earlier this month beginning to line up to receive groceries from We Care INC’s food pantry in South Haven. Pantry volunteers say requests for groceries have tripled over last year.

SOUTH HAVEN — The economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic can be clearly seen at food pantries across the nation, including We Care INC’s food pantry at First Congregational Church in South Haven.

In an average year the pantry provides food for approximately 35 families per week. This year though is much different.
