Ort Library Continues its Collection for the Frostburg Food Pantry

The Ort Library continues to collect food for the Frostburg Food Pantry through December 20, 2013. 

The display on food insecurity, located on the 3rd floor (located between the 4 stand-up PCs) continues through the end of this month. This display looks at food insecurity and hunger for those living in Allegany and Garrett counties. More than 49 million Americans are living in households that are food insecure. According to the latest US Census data, more than 30% of households in Allegany County and almost 28% of households in Garrett County have incomes of less than $25,000, which can make purchasing food difficult. 

A collection box is located by the display.
