Two representatives of the Blackfoot Community Dinner Table accepted a check for $1,000 from the Bank of Commerce on Wednesday.
The food pantry at the Bingham Senior Citizens Center is an extension of the Community Dinner Table.
Justin Hokanson, a senior vice president and manager of the Blackfoot branch, presented the check to Ronda Cheatham, CDTâ€™s food pantry coordinator, and Lee Hammett, another member of the CDT board of directors.
Cheatham noted that the money will be used to buy food for the pantry. Hammett said that food available to needy people each week includes produce, frozen meat and dairy products.
Both Cheatham and Hammett pointed out that canned foods are always at a premium at the food pantry. They said individuals who wish to donate may drop canned goods off at the senior center.
