Recognizing a growing need and trying to better accommodate those who work during the day, the Banks-Jackson Food Bank is now open for two hours on Monday nights.
“We have a lot of people come in who say they have a problem getting here because they work,” explained Patti Bearden, food bank manager. “We wanted to give an opportunity for people who work during the day to come in during the evening.
Monday evening hours are 6 to 8. The food bank, located at 111 Atlanta Avenue in Commerce, is also open from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
