FBP delivers donation to Pike County food pantry

WAVERLY, Ohio -- September 12, 2022 -- Fluor-BWXT employees, along with the Department of Energy, Mid-America Conversion Services, and Enterprise Technical Assistance Services, Inc., at the Portsmouth site in Pike County recently collected food and monetary donations for area food pantries to support the Feds Feed Family food drive. On Sept. 6, FBP Deputy Site Project Director James Miller, visited the Pike Outreach Food Pantry in Waverly to deliver $1,050 in donations.

“It is important for us to help ease the burden of those suffering from hunger in our communities,” Miller said. “Until you’ve worn those shoes and experienced hunger, you really don’t know how devastating it can be to face the challenges of hunger.”

Years ago, Food Pantry Coordinator Autumn Topping spent time in those shoes when family medical bills drove her family to a shelter. Topping began volunteering and later took a job at the pantry where she has worked for more than 15 years.

“While COVID funding is dwindling, we are still serving hundreds of households every week. The amount of food that is distributed depends on family size,” Topping said. “During the first month of COVID, 57 new households were added.”

Pike Outreach is funded through its friends and supporters, regional church bodies, local congregations, organizations, companies, the Hunger Walk, volunteers and grants. For more information about pantry needs, eligibility or services, call 740-947-7151.
