Help The Hungry Presents Checks To Food Pantries

(Farmington) The Farmington Ministerial Alliance and the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantries in Farmington were both presented checks today of $69,000. The checks were from the Help the Hungry Bake Sale and Auction. Chris Landrum is the organizer of this annual fundraiser. She says making sure people don’t have to go hungry makes all their hard work worthwhile.

Nancy Faulkner is the director of the Farmington Ministerial Alliance. She says they’re extremely grateful to the committee and the public as a whole.

Agnes Hinkebein is the director of the St. Vincent de Paul Pantry. She says this money will go a long way in making sure they can fulfill their mission.

The grant check ceremony was held at the First Baptist Church in Farmington. The Help the Hungry Bake Sale and Auction was held at the St. Joseph Catholic School gymnasium. This was also the year that the group Baked It To A Million, meaning they’ve now raised a million dollars for the pantries since the fundraiser began. Hear our interviews from the ceremony below.
