Fraternity’s efforts helped food pantry

The staff and volunteers of the Marietta Community Food Pantry would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity at Marietta College for donating the proceeds from their hog roast to the pantry. This event is a wonderful example of community service from Marietta College students. We are grateful for their help in providing food for needy families.

In 2013, Marietta Community Food Pantry served almost 3,000 households with a total of more than 7,400 people served. In January through April, 2014, we have served almost 800 households for a total of 2,230 people served. The food pantry is located at 318 Front St., Marietta. The hours are Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Wednesday evenings from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. If you are interested in donating, volunteering or would like more information, please call (740) 373-5741 or email
