A change in the layout of the pantry last fall made the shopping area bigger and helps give it the feel of a grocery store. This allows participants to be able to push a cart down the aisles to shop. Previously, participants would select items from shelves in a small room where only one shopper and no carts could fit. Volunteers would then have to bring items from the separate produce and refrigerator/freezer sections. Thanks to a crew of volunteers, all of these items are now in one place. Submitted photo
