The Pendleton Community Public Library's Read 'n' Feed project welcomes local residents to a food pantry held inside of the library every Thursday from 3-6 p.m. Visitors can select from an assortment of non-perishable food, including canned and boxed goods, bread, and fresh fruits and veggies. During the growing season, the fresh produce is provided by the Pendleton Community Garden
. If you wish to visit the pantry, all we want is your name and address. Then select 10 food items of your choosing. No gimmicks. No catch. No questions asked.
If you are not able to make it to the pantry during regular hours, or if you are in need of a food delivery to your home, please call (765) 778-7527 and ask for Jenny or Lynn.
Remember, your library has many resources to assist you. We can get you connected to local agencies committed to helping you work through the challenges you are facing. Just talk with a Read 'n' Feed staff member or volunteer to let us know what you need. Or call us anytime at (765) 778-7527. Remember, we are here to help! It's what we do.
We are grateful to all Read'n'Feed Sponsors, including United Way of Madison County, South Madison Community Foundation, Kroger, Needler's Fresh Market, Friends of the Pendleton Community Public Library, The Township Trustees of Fall Creek, Green Township, and Adams Township, the Pendleton Farmers' Market, and many generous private donors. We wouldn't be putting food on the table without you!
