BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Officials at a Bismarck food pantry say the facility for the needy has its lowest grocery inventory in nearly 40 years.
Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry volunteer Linda Haider says demand for food is soaring with more people moving to the area in search of work.
Haider says July was the busiest month ever at the pantry. She says the pantry has about a third of the inventory that has been on hand in previous years.
The pantry is run by about 30 volunteers who rely solely on donations.
Officials say the pantry has helped almost 2,500 families this year with food and household items.
