Camden County food pantry seeks help setting up new location

Posted: Updated:

A Camden County food pantry moved into its new location -- but they say their fundraising efforts don't stop there.

The Cherry Hill Food Pantry is currently housed on Beechwood Avenue. They say they were forced out of their previous location when their lease wasn't renewed.

The new space is over 8,300 square feet, and will require more than $70,000 in renovation costs.

"We need to set up our mini supermarket, and I can't do that with all the offices here. So not only do we need help with demolition, I desperately need someone to donate ... a construction dumpster, that would be wonderful, because every little bit that the community can give to us will help us save our money," says Janet Giordano, executive director of the pantry.

The pantry is hoping those in skilled positions will help donate their talents to help renovate. While the building will not be open to their clients yet, they will continue to feed those in the community with a drive-up service.
