RINCON — The shelves at the Manna House Ministries Food Pantry are a little fuller today thanks to a $2,000 donation by State Farm agents Ashley Boyette and Sundi Williamson.

“Our communities are hurting right now and our obligation is to step in and help our neighbors,” Boyette said.

The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the loss of jobs, is having a drastic impact on the food security of local population.

“Supporting the good work of the Manna House Ministries food bank will go a long way toward helping all of us get back on our feet,” Williamson added

 Manna House’s main objective is to fight hunger and provide nutritional items that supplement food needs, serving more than 700 local households monthly. 

“This funding will help provide food for residents in need, something that is growing daily in our area,” Manna House Director Lisa Bush said. 

The USDA estimates that 41 million people, including nearly 13 million children, in the United States are food insecure. This means one in eight individuals, and one in six children, live in households without consistent access to adequate food.
