Volunteers Randolph Edwards and Lois Terkhorn work to load carts at Harvest For the Hungry in Ironton on Monday.

 

Harvest for the Hungry food pantry has been organizing several events and fundraisers.

The food pantry had a sandwich and soup event over the weekend, which drew about 100 people, volunteer Lois Terkhorn said.

“We sold out of sandwiches,” she said.

The fundraiser netted about $900 for the food pantry, and director Diane Porter said she hopes for more events like it in the near future.

“We’re going to be doing these with more frequency,” she said.

Porter said the group will host a rummage sale at the food pantry from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on June 4.

Items can be dropped off at the food pantry from 9 a.m.-noon on Mondays and Wednesdays. All proceeds will go to the pantry.

Terkhorn said Harvest for the Hungry also plans to set up at the Ironton Farmers Market, and will sell some of their newly-printed shirts.
