On July 1, the Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks sponsored its ninth annual Food Kart Day for the Webb Community Food Pantry at St. Bartholomew's Church.

Kiwanis members and other volunteers were stationed at Kalil's Market in Inlet, DiOrio's Supermarket in Old, Forge and Kinney Drugs in Old Forge. They asked shoppers to consider buying an additional non-perishable food item and drop them off in the grocery carts stationed as they exited the stores. Each shopper was provided with a "Shopping List" of typical non-perishable food items that might be purchased for the Food Pantry.

At the end of the day, Kiwanis volunteers transported over four pickup truck loads of food items to the Webb Community Food Pantry located at St. Bartholomew's Church for distribution as needed and collected more than $500 in cash.
