LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Lafayette Urban Ministry will open the new Protein Food Pantry tomorrow morning.
Located at the LUM Ray Ewry Center at 525 North 4th Street, the pantry will be dedicated to providing families with protein products such as both fresh and canned meat, beans, peanut butter, and fresh produce. Baby and feminine products will also be available.
High carbohydrate foods and snacks will not be given out.
Mary Anderson works as an interim staff member on the project with LUM, and she hopes the new pantry will provide new benefits to those who use the service.
“For one thing, their general health, to have good high quality protein have fresh produce available to them,” Anderson explained. “Paper products are not available with food stamps, so that's one reason we're focusing on the paper products.”
The Protein Food Pantry will be open every Thursday morning from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM.
