HERMITAGE, Pa. (WKBN) – The Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County held a Stuff-the-Bus event to help fill its cupboards prior to the holiday season.

The agency is collecting non-perishable food items to give to those in need.

“With the colder months, a lot more families will be making hard choices and with inflation already at a 40-year high, our lines at food pantries and feeding sites are growing longer, we anticipate that to continue was winter approaches,” said Community Warehouse executive director Becky Page.

They ask for the community to continue supporting their pantry.

Next weekend, the Community Food Warehouse is hosting its 8th annual “race to end hunger” at BCC LindenPointe in Hermitage. You can still sign up for the 5k or the 2 mile walk.
