The McFarland Community Food Pantry Board has approved one of its two volunteer Co-Manager positions. McFarland resident Judy Taber has agreed to work with the Pantry Board to oversee the day-to-day operations of the McFarland Community Food Pantry. Judy has started working with the two long time managers, Sue Steinmetz and Toni Hutter to learn firsthand the responsibilities of the position.

The Board is looking for someone who is creative, energetic, and committed to the Pantry’s mission of helping those struggling with food insecurity in the McFarland community.

- Distributed school supplies and school gift cards to students
- Provided holiday meals and Christmas gifts to households
- Coordinated with McFarland community organizations and volunteers to organize special events, food drives, fresh produce and monetary donations
