By: Nick Woolley - Tuesday, October 5, 2021

(Angola) - The City of Angola Board of Public Works and Safety unanimously approved a 6-month trial of a community pantry.

The trial plan is part of a project that originated in Fort Wayne by Elemento in partnership with RISE. The pantry will include items for those in need that food stamps may not. These items include hygiene products, winter clothing, water, and much more that someone may need.

The location is planned to be against the east wall of 65 South Public Square. The pantry will be fully painted as well.

Cameras will be installed to prevent vandalism as well.

Jorge Ruiz of Elemento said, “We hope to remove the stigma of asking for help by installing this community pantry. We already have 6 in Auburn, and hope this one is successful in Angola”.

Elemento hopes to continue helping those in need by installing more pantries in the north-eastern region of Indiana.
