It’s time for our May Agency Highlight! This time we’re cruising down to the lake area for Share the Harvest Food Pantry and Clothes Closet in Camdenton. About 17 years ago a group of volunteers noticed a need for food for youth and their families, thus the pantry began as a small operation. As the pantry grew, the decision was made to add the thrift store to help sustain the pantry resources. The pantry also has a garden on site that brings fresh produce to families and they provide financial assistance for a variety of needs like medical or electric bills. During the pandemic, the number of neighbors they serve stayed about the same and decreased slightly in the summer as other local organizations offered services and resources. Share the Harvest really appreciates the blankets and dental kits- especially during flu season and the pandemic.
