GRUNDY CENTER - Recently, Operation Threshold in Grundy Center received a new cooler - which was donated by the Northeast Iowa Food Bank - for distributing fresh produce and milk to local food pantry customers.

 

Jodi Rowe, Grundy County Operation Threshold Director, says the new cooler will help the organization expand their offerings to help provide local families in need with fresh, wholesome food products.

 

Aside from the pantry’s regular offerings of non-perishable food products and other toiletries and hygiene products, Operation Threshold is now able to offer meat, baked goods, vegetables and fruit to their customers. They also offer a voucher to Brother’s Market, where families can use the voucher to purchase other necessities like butter, eggs, milk and bread from the store.

 

The only thing now is letting people in need know that these services exist and are open to them.
