To the Editor:
Recently, the Rustler had an article reporting that Loaves and Fishes has donated $10,000 to the Food Bank for Monterey County (“Loaves and Fishes Donates $10K to Keep Fighting Against Hunger,” Jan. 20, page A1). Loaves and Fishes is one of the two major food donation sites in King City. Neither site has been able to open during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I am the secretary for the Community Food Pantry of King City. First, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Food Bank for Monterey County for its ongoing commitment to those in need in South County by supplying much needed food to our communities.
We think it is wonderful that Loaves and Fishes was able to donate $10,000 to the Food Bank. The Community Food Pantry of King City has also donated much needed funds to the Food Bank during this past year.
Thanks to our generous donors, we have been able to send close to $15,000 to the Food Bank for Monterey County during the past year, and we have included the Food Bank in our budget for the coming year.
The Community Food Pantry of King City wishes to assure those who have been donating to the Food Pantry that we will continue to support the Food Bank for Monterey County as long as they are serving the needs of our communities in South County. We are looking forward to the time when we will be able to open our doors once again to our community.
Thank you, once more, to the Food Bank for Monterey County and all of the generous donors in our South County communities for opening your hearts and assisting those in need.
Secretary, Community Food Pantry of King City
