Grab-and-go pantries, led by Food Bank for the Heartland, started last week to feed kids missing out on lunch as schools closed to stymie the spread of Covid-19.

However demand is high and often the pantries run out with many leaving empty handed.

  1. Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re
    using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the
    site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
