Three food pantry sites in Glendale have received funding in the latest budget cycle.

Councilman Bob Holden’s office announced that 10 total food pantries in his district will get a share of the $95,595 total allocation.

The three sites in Glendale are: The Legacy Center Community Development Corp., Community Alliance Initiative and Sacred Heart Church, pictured above.

According to Nancy Baer, pastoral associate at Sacred Heart, the food pantry there serves over 180 families in the Glendale area.

“This past year, the grant that we received through Councilman Holden’s efforts enabled us to serve those families consistently, each week, without turning anyone away due to lack of food on the shelves,” Baer says.
