Members of Lonoke Missionary Baptist Church pose with food and other goods donated Thursday, Sept. 7, 2023, to the pantry at Clinton Primary School in Hope, Ark. Pictured are, back row from left, Margaret Moss, Mike Bradley, Norma Henry and Mary Green; and front row from left, Alice Straughter, pantry director Gina Karber and O'Dell Gulley. Karber welcomed the gift. "We started the school year with just four cans of corn," she said. Students who receive items from the pantry first are referred to Karber by a teacher, administrator or school staff member "who takes note of a need for food or clothing," Karber said. The student may have missed breakfast at school or in some other way indicated his or her family does not have enough food at home. Karber said the food is delivered to the child at school "to fill his or her tummy until lunchtime." (Photo courtesy of Hope Public Schools)
