In the first week of November alone, the food shelf saw 92 families, which is 30 more than its weekly average.

Right now, the food shelf is asking for canned beans and peanut butter. “We want to be able to provide a protein that people can add to rice or vegetables, to make a balanced meal,” she said.

The food shelf is also hosting a winter clothing drive. NACE’s clothing closet gives out coats, boots and other winter apparel, from October through February. In October, the closet distributed 118 coats.

“Replenishing gently used coats is an ongoing request,” she said.
