Thanks to the Marquette Rotaract Club at Northern Michigan University, Feeding America's mobile food pantry will soon be stopping in Marquette.On April 18th the mobile food pantry will be parked at the Marquette Salvation Army, beginning at 5 p.m. The 15,000 pound truck feeds approximately 400 families, and if any food is left over, it will be donated to the Salvation Army's food bank. The college Rotaract Club reached out to all three Rotary Clubs in Marquette. Each one supplied grants to make this event possible. Right now it is after Christmas when people are needing to restock their pantries. Feeding West Michigan has labeled Marquette the most food insecure county in the Upper Peninsula so it the rotaract club is happy to have them coming. If things go well, they hope to make this an annual or semi annual event. Any left overs will be donated to the Salvation Army. If you, or anyone you know, could benefit from this effort, please mark April 18th on your calendar.
