The Salvation Army of Amarillo is hosting a grand opening of their food pantry.
The pantry will have nonperishable items such as canned-goods, pastas, and beans but also have a selection of frozen meats for clients to choose from.
Clients that wish to use this resource will apply for eligibility and once they are approved, they will be able to receive an “emergency box” once a month.
The Amarillo Food Bank and Tyson Foods have already made donations to the bank and says they will continue to donate.
The Salvation Army says they will also purchase food items themselves.
