The Delta Food Pantry was recently the recipient of a $3,000 grant from the Western Colorado Community Foundation.
With no paid staff operating the pantry, the donation will go directly to help feed the many hungry families in the Delta area who seek assistance from the Delta Food Pantry. Volunteers at the food pantry have served over 3,700 hungry individuals through August 31st, an increase in service from previous years. "We are so thankful for this donation and for the support from Western Colorado Community Foundation," Pfalzgraff said. "The funds will help us continue to meet the growing need of alleviating hunger in our community." The Delta Food Pantry is located in the alley behind St. Michael's Church at 6th and Meeker in Delta, and is open Monday - Friday at 10:30 a.m. Tax deductible donations can be mailed to PO Box 903, Delta CO 81416.
On Dec. 2, officers of the Delta Police Department responded to a report of an assault. Officers spoke with a 64-year-old male with a bleeding injury on his neck.
