in #CASE you missed it... A Pair Of Moms Start Community Food Pantry
When Diana Love found out someone in her community passed away from coronavirus, she jumped into action to help their family. She wanted to help the grieving relatives by starting a meal train and reached out to friends for help. Her pal Amy Marshall stepped up and their support grew from there.
Together they co-founded the West Annapolis Pop Up Pantry to provide food for any and all community members who were suffering during the pandemic. It started with them delivering to five to 10 families a week and now it’s up to 120 or more families a week. They hand deliver groceries and supplies twice a week and host an outdoor food pantry on weekends. And it all comes from donations from the community.
“If there’s someone who needs us and we have the ability to help them, it’s not that hard to lend a hand,” Diana says. “One mom at a time really can make a difference.”
