The West Side pantry was one of four
nationwide, nominated to compete in the online contest. Marietta’s pantry
came out ahead of nominees from Clinton, Indiana; Clyde, Ohio and Fort
Lauderdale, Florida (pop. 165,000).
The Gospel Mission Food Pantry opened
last September at the Harmar Community Center on Lancaster Street under the
leadership of Candy and Jeff Waite and with an army of volunteers.
Thanks to the community's online votes, the pantry will receive a monetary donation and coupons to help
stock the shelves.
