Allen Countians were in a giving mood Tuesday, with food donations in a pair of locations.
The Rev. Tom Waters, representing the Allen County Area Food Pantry, accepted several cases of non-perishable food items from Tammy Lewis, on behalf of Sonic Drive-In. Lewis noted that Sonic restaurants in Iola and elsewhere have been extraordinarily busy during the COVID-19 pandemic because of its drive-up service. The food comes from the restaurant’s owners, Lewis said.
Tracy Keagle of Humanity House handed out sack lunches to passing motorists by Humboldt High School. Humanity House agreed to step forward, Keagle said, to fill in the gap between the end of the regular school year for USD 258 and the resumption of the district’s summer meals program after Memorial Day. Food will be handed out by Humanity House during the lunch period on Bridge Street north of the high school through Friday.
