There’s a genuine success story that College Park residents might not be fully aware of, City Commissioner Robert Stuart noted, and that’s the Love Pantry.
Student, who is also the director of the Christian Service Center and a member of the Rotary Club of College Park, noted that the original goal – to help feed school kids – has been a real success.
“We now have pantries in 65 schools,” Stuart told fellow members of the Rotary Club during its weekly meeting on May 7.
It was started four years ago by Christian Service Center, which works to provide care and basic needs for the region’s poorest residents.
Love Pantry was designed to put the focus on the kids in schools who are in need. As part of the Love Pantry project, each school that participates was provided with a cabinet stocked with emergency food and basic hygiene items.
