The shelves are nearly bare at the Salvation Army Food Pantry in DuBois.

The pantry is in need of any non-perishable foods, like canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, and pasta. They also need food that doesn’t require a stove for those who are homeless.

Lt. Michelle Miller with the DuBois Salvation Army said a low stock of food is often a problem this time of year because less donations are made during the summer months.

“During the Christmas season, everyone gives food, and, I think, oftentimes people forget that during the summer people are still hungry, especially with children at home,” Miller said. “So our food pantry is quite low now.”

The pantry serves a wide variety of people in DuBois and surrounding communities.

Donations can be dropped off Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until noon, then 1 p.m. until 4 p.m., and on Friday, 9 a.m. to noon.
