DALLAS — The board of directors of the Back Mountain Food Pantry recently held its annual meeting to review donations, operations and client needs.

The food pantry serves more than 265 households in the Back Mountain. The pantry also provides Thanksgiving and Easter dinner baskets for registered families.

The pantry will once again conduct the “No Hungry Tummies” program this summer to provide additional food for more than 100 children who are not in school to receive their breakfast and lunch meals and must rely on food from home.

The food pantry is totally staffed by volunteers.

Monetary donations may be sent to the Back Mountain Food Pantry, 40 Knob Hill Road, Trucksville, PA 18708.

Donations of nonperishable food may be delivered to the food pantry or the following off-site locations: Hilbert’s Tractor Store, Rt. 415, Dallas; Cook’s Pharmacy, Rt. 309, Shavertown; and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, off of Rt. 118, Dallas.
