“We were astounded to reach 25% of our target population of 500 at our first pick up event,” said library director Dominic Frandrup. “Food insecurity is major issue with area seniors and this is another way the library supports our community. We could not have made this program the success that it was without all of the volunteers and partner organizations. Their help and support was invaluable and we are excited to be able to offer this event again on March 29th.”
