Youths purchase groceries for Richland Food Pantry

The youth group of Ss. Joseph & Cabrini Parish in Richland stands behind the food youths purchased to help stock the Richland Food Pantry for the summer.

The youth group of Ss. Joseph & Cabrini Parish in Richland was on a mission Sunday as youths arrived at the Hy-Vee store in Fairfield. In April, the group had bussed tables at the Fairfield Pizza Ranch and earned more than $300 to purchase items for the Richland Food Pantry.

In small groups, youths headed down the aisles of Hy-Vee with a grocery cart, $50 and a list of suggested grocery items. To add some fun to the task, students were challenged to see how many items they could purchase for less than $50.

The Hy-Vee store manager gave youths a discount on their total grocery purchase. 

The groceries were then taken to Richland to be delivered to the food pantry, where demand is expected to increase after school ends.
