The result of federal cuts to the agency - near empty pantry shelves.
In turn, food bank's across the country - don't have as much food.
That decline - has trickled down to Matt Talbot Kitchen and Outreach.

The non-profit's Emergency Pantry has an emergency of its own.

Bare shelves.

Those shelves usually give needy families well-balanced meals. Instead - volunteers are only able to give families what they have - which isn't much.

To make matters worse- donations are low as well.

"We don't have a variety of things to put in the bag, we have lots of cereal and a few beans," Matt Talbot Homeless Case Manager Ann Heydt said. "Otherwise, we don't have don't have vegetables, fruits, or soups to put in the bags of food to send with the people for them to have a complete meal."

In addition, the pantry needs canned meats, boxed meals, and Peanut Butter and Jelly.
