Food Shelves Bare at MUST Ministries

MARIETTA, Ga. -- MUST Ministries needs help filling bare food shelves at its Donation Center, where the demand is up 35 percent.

At the same time, donations are down.

"It breaks my heart to know we don't have enough to give out to the people that come to us," said Annette Lee, MUST Donation Center Director. "It's overwhelming."

The MUST Donation Center fills food pantries in Cobb and Cherokee Counties, catering to families facing financial trouble.

Right now, there's not enough canned fruit, canned meats, pasta, jelly or dry milk.

The summer months are always tough, but this year is worse, Lee said.

"A month ago, these shelves were full," Lee said. "It's up to us and the community to make sure the people around us have enough to eat."

You can help by making a financial donation or droping off groceries at the MUST Donation Center at 1210B Kennestone Circle in Marietta.

You can also leave food donations at one of several collection sites:
