PhotoThe speaker at the February 20 Rotary Club of Kirksville meeting was Lisa Ahrens, board director at Pantry for Adair County. Lisa said that hunger is a reality in Adair County, which ranks 11th in the state for food needs. After first working with the Mobile Food Pantry in 2016, the Pantry began operating out of a building at 2012 S. Halliburton St. on July 18, 2018. In 2017, the Central Church of Christ had offered use of a metal building rent free on its property provided the Pantry did needed repairs and renovations. With this building, they are now able to serve many more Adair County families. The Pantry for Adair County is open Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m., and Wednesdays and Fridays, from 1-3 p.m. The speaker is pictured with Rotarian Barbara Smith-Mandell (right) who introduced her.
