Susan Blacknik strolled through rows of shelves at the Creswell Food Pantry. She passed empty spaces and cases upon cases of canned beans and pureed pumpkin.
“I don’t like to see bare shelves over there, and there’s more bare shelves than I’ve seen since I started six years ago,” she said.
With the winter months approaching, Blachnik, the pantry manager, said food stocks always get a little lower, but a drive held by Creslane Elementary and South Lane County Fire & Rescue brought in 3,844 pounds of food on Nov. 21. However, by Nov. 22, that much and then some was gone.
