Several local Rotary Clubs have come together in a new way to help the hungry in our community.  Free Food Pantry Boxes have been set up throughout San Luis Obispo County and are stocked with cereal, peanut butter, soup, snacks, etc.   They are a great resource for families that don’t have enough to eat.  In the 5 Cities area, one pantry box is located on the 900 block of Newport Ave, in Grover Beach. 
"You don’t have to do much to make a big difference in someone’s life" says Laura Ochoa of the Rotary Passport Club of the Central Coast.  "There’s a tremendous need for this."
Members Natasha, Beau, and Aliyah Mercurio helped fellow Rotarian George Shearer build pantry boxes in his wood workshop.  
PathPoint also sponsors one of Rotary's pantry boxes.  
More boxes are being planned and all Rotarians will be thrilled to see empty boxes that need restocking! 
Though small in size, it is a simple solution to take a bite out of an ongoing struggle in this community.
