"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.
