Macy Food Pantry sells fall decor to help fight local food insecurity

Falling back into routine, it's the seventh year Director of Macy Food Pantry, Amy Eckrote, has sold fall decor items to raise funds for food insecurity.

Eckrote said there's still one more week to go for the sale at 12806 N Old Route 31, outside of Macy. Those interested can text Eckrote at 574-930-0448 to set up an appointment, or contact her on her Facebook page.


Starting the sale as a school project for her son in 2016, Eckrote said she later saw it as a doorway to help the community with food insecurity.

The Macy Food Pantry is located at 2779 W 1350 N near Macy, and is open each month on the second and fourth Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. 



Eckrote said funding for the Macy Food Pantry outside of the fall sale has been a continuous job for the past seven years. Eckrote says she is always looking for donations to the pantry, in hopes of helping those in the community that need assistance. 



Eckrote will also be doing the fall sale during the Brookston's Barn Market in Denver on September 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
