Faithworks Ministries and their local food banks are running very low on supplies as the summer comes to a close.

Bob Furnad, former chairman of FaithWorks, reported that “the shelves were empty except for peanut butter, jelly and baked beans.”
According to volunteer Mary Smith, more than 30 applicants came to the centers for food on Friday. While the food bank was able to supply food for all 30 families that came by, supplies are perilously low.
