Following a vote last week to provide $500 to three area food banks — Allen County Community Pantry (Iola), Humboldt and Humanity House — this week the Commission voted to fund a fourth: Moran PRIDE.

The request came from Larry Manes, who had written commissioners after learning the county was helping provide additional funds due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Food banks around the country have been slammed lately, with the number of people taking advantage of such services skyrocketing due to unemployment and other factors.
