HUBBARD, Ohio (WYTV) - One local Eagle Scout started a 24-hour food pantry in Hubbard to help families who cannot afford food, soap, deodorant and other necessities.
The pantry is located outside of the First Presbyterian Church on Westview Avenue.
Items at the pantry include non-perishable foods, cleaning and bathing products and school supplies.
Eagle Scout Mathew Ondo said as long as they have it, you are more than welcome to take what you need.
The idea of the pantry came to him while in class one day.
"I've given out plenty of pencils over the years and can tell that some people just left it on the desk at home and some can't afford it, so this is to hopefully end the need or hopefully take the heat off of some of the other relief companies in the area," Ondo said.
The pantry is also accepting donations from the community at any time.
