JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) – A pantry is needed. Helping Neighbors Food Pantry recently moved to a larger facility, but now they are facing a more significant issue with empty shelves.

The board president of the non-profit, Gary Latanich, said in July 2022 they served 250 more families than usual in July.

He said they have seen a steady increase in the number of people they serve. This has resulted in shelves and bins being empty to the point where they are considering closing temporarily to build up a good food supply.

Latanich said they are getting shipments from the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas and Walmart, but those shipments aren’t stretching as much as they were in the past.

“It’s all together, but we need more food. If we had food, we would be perfect. It’s hard to imagine that we will run out, especially when there are so many more customers coming,” said Latanich.

He said the freezers are empty without meat and many products are in stock.

He said they have enough food to serve people Monday and maybe Tuesday, but after that it’s up in the air if they’ll be able to open for those in need.
