The Litchfield Rotary Club has made a move to help replace a popular food pantry that left the community with the closure of a downtown church. According to the Homer Index newspaper, the Rotary will be organizing a monthly food box distribution program. Litchfield Rotary President, Michael Schneider says the group will begin with 75 boxes of food, and will adjust accordingly after seeing the initial response. Boxes will include non-perishable food items and fresh commercially processed meat. Schneider says the need was recognized following the closure of the Litchfield United Methodist Church, which for several years met the community need with an established food pantry. Boxes will be distributed on a first come, first served basis on the first Monday of every month, beginning on Monday, December 7th at the Litchfield Initiative Regional Training Center in the industrial park.
