EAST END FOOD PANTRIES NEED OUR HELP:
As always our local food pantries need help with the ever increasing demand from those who just can't afford to feed their families. For example from January 2009 to January 2010 the number of families seeking aid tripled in East Hampton. The demand is year round but increases at this time of year as one would expect with the seasonal employment situation. Here is a list of local food panties:
