Increase in demand for help drives shortage of supplies for local pantries

At least one local food pantry has reached a critical shortage when it comes to how much food it has available to help a record number of people.

“There isn’t anything you can’t bring that we can’t put on our shelves,” said Deb Bedwell, executive director of Anchor House Food Pantry.

The Seymour pantry served 1,280 people in January, up from 1,043 during January 2012, Bedwell said.
