Bethel state Representatives are touting a successful food drive for the Bethel Community Food Pantry. About 128 pounds of food was collected during the month of February. Will Duff and Stephen Harding say they were proud to lend a helping hand to residents who are in-need. They also praised donors for working together to make a difference in the community. Bethel residents in-need can visit every other Tuesday and choose their own non-perishable food plus bread, fresh fruit and vegetables and, when available, meat and dairy products. The volunteer-run non=-profit also offers items not covered by food stamps, such as toilet paper, shampoo, deodorant and laundry detergent.
