Palmer said she feels the volunteer staff of about 15 is adequate but would never deny a helping hand. If interested in volunteering, call Palmer at 293-7331.
According to Palmer, various high school groups and local clubs have contributed to the food pantry.
“We have a very generous community,” she said. “Otsego Electric is always having collections and raffles for us. We get a lot of meat from Larry’s Custom Meats. He just donated 30 pounds of hamburger. We get some meat at discount prices and he donates a lot.”
Palmer said she and her husband have been volunteers at the food pantry and assumed more responsibility when Anita Harrison decided to slow down.
“She is still active at the food pantry and volunteers,” Palmer said. “My husband and I are both retired and have the time, so we thought we could help our community a little more.”
