Downtown Food Pantry will temporarily move its operations to the Lamar County Fairgrounds coliseum beginning May 10. While they pour concrete on their large parking lot, the pantry will redirect
all those needing food to the fairgrounds. “All households will receive one pre-made box of food during this time,” said Allan Hubbard, Executive Director. “We will not be able to provide fresh produce or cold or frozen items.”
We distribute the food boxes on the pantry’s regular schedule: Tuesdays from 1:30-4:30 pm and Thursdays from 8:30-11:30 am. Those in need will remain in their vehicle, and volunteers will check them.
will then load the food box into the vehicle. “This location and this box of food will be what we’re able to provide while the parking lot is being made perfect. We hope to return to our normal location with our normal shopping experience in early June,” Hubbard said.
Between now and May 10, the food pantry will be open to the public at 124 W. Cherry St. in Paris per its regular schedule. For more information, call 903-737-8870.
