Marshall County, Okla. (KXII) – Hope for Marshall County, a food pantry is preparing to give a week’s worth of food to families in need.
“We just want to make sure these people have food and they can get it on their cabinets and on their tables,” said Gwen Wilson, owner of Hope for Marshall County.
After Kingston Public Schools’ announcement of moving to online-only classes after a positive COVID-19 case in its cafeteria left the district to temporarily halt serving food.
Gwen Wilson, owner and operator of Hope for Marshall County said the food pantry has 38 boxes ready for pick up for families in Kingston who registered over the weekend.
Wilson said boxes of goods can contain meats, canned goods and fresh produce and are available to everyone living in Marshall County. Community members can help by donating goods to the pantry or by restocking blessing boxes around the county with non-perishable foods.
“We have a lot of ways you can contribute and help make sure that when the call goes out like what happened at Kingston, that we are fully stock to send those boxes out immediately,” said Wilson.
People are asked to make an appointment before visiting the pantry on 19123 Elizabeth Blvd in Oakland. The pantry also carries pet food, hygiene products and cleaning supplies.
Anyone seeking help can reach Hope for Marshall County on their Facebook page.
