FREMONT – Larry Faist always tries to keep the Sandusky County Food Pantry well-stocked with food orders.
It’s become an increased challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic, owing partly to difficulties in getting food orders from normally reliable grocery stores, combined with heightened demand from the county’s neediest residents.
Faist, the food pantry’s purchasing agent, usually does the bulk buying for the pantry.
He used to get a lot of food that the pantry ordered from Kroger and Aldi.
Recently, he’s placed orders for cases of rice, corn and green beans that haven’t shown up for weeks.
