Food pantries noticing an uptick in need

Local food pantries are reporting an increase in adults without children and senior citizens needing assistance. The director of one group, Community Compassion, told the Bryan Times that a lot of adults are really hurting in the area, and they can’t get government help. Kay Byroads said “if you don’t have child in your household, you’re basically out.” And senior citizens are reaching out more. The United Way is reportedly helping out the food pantries even more, including providing food and much needed hygiene products and laundry soap.
