Free food offered Aug. 13 in Pequot Lakes


Second Harvest Food Network will host a Pop-Up Pantry offering free food for anyone in need from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, Aug. 13, at Pequot Lakes High School.

Those who participate should stay in their car at all times and follow signs to enter. One food box per household in need will be offered. If carpooling, two boxes per vehicle (one box per household) will be offered. Anyone with more than two households in a vehicle can receive additional boxes by going to the back of the line.

No restrooms will be available.

The Pequot Lakes Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring this event.
