SOUTHERN TIER (WENY) - The Food Bank of the Southern Tier's Mobile Food Pantry will be closed Friday and Saturday due to extremely cold temperatures.
It was scheduled to be at Saint Patrick's Church in Whitney Point Friday morning and at Schuyler Outreach in Watkins Glen on Saturday. Both of those have been canceled because of the projections for extremely cold temperatures.
The Mobile Food Pantry is scheduled to reopen Monday. Its schedule can be found here.
The Mobile Food Pantry is used to deliver fresh produce, dairy products and other food and grocery items directly to places where people need food. When the truck arrives at a site, volunteers put the food on tables, surrounding the truck. Clients are then able to choose what items they need.
