UPDATED: Thanks For Food Pantry Donations..The Need Remains

Sheldon, Iowa — We recently asked our listeners to help replenish the nearly bare shelves at the O’Brien County UDMO Food Pantry in Primghar, and you stepped up.

Collections of non-perishable food items can be dropped off at O’Brien County Implement in east Sheldon, and since they began accepting donations for the food pantry they have received more than two loads of food that they’ve taken to UDMO in Primghar. Jay Schemper of O’Brien County Implement says they’re still accepting those donations.

Schemper says the demand for foodstuffs from the UDMO Food Pantry vary somewhat by season.

If you’d like to drop off non-perishable food items for the O’Brien County UDMO Food Pantry, Schemper says you can do it in Sheldon, if it’s more convenient.

The Upper Des Moines Opportunity O’Brien County Food pantry helps citizens in the county who may not have food to eat without the help of the food pantry, and the people who support the project with their food donations.
