DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — More than 420 pounds of food were donated to the Carroll County Food Pantry in Delphi Friday.

That food is from Thursday's vigil for Abby Williams and Libby German.

The Carroll County Food Pantry collects food from all over the county including 11 churches

Delphi United Methodist Church is one of the churches that donates food to the pantry.

It hosted the vigil last night.

Nancy Cripe is the site manager at the Carroll County Food Pantry.

She said she had no idea how much food was going to be donated and she's thankful for the hundreds of pounds of food collected from the vigil.

"That was just a really pleasant surprise," said Cripe. "I saw it on TV last night and we talked about it this morning. We wondered if we will get it."

It was a surprise the food pantry got it Friday because it was not expecting it until Monday.

Former Delphi Mayor Randy Strasser dropped off the food and then pantry volunteers weighed it; a staggering 420 pounds of food.
