Earlier this month, Dalton Baptist Church was blessed to have its food pantry order from the Akron/Canton Food Bank delivered by the Ohio National Guard, according to information provided by the church. With many people laid off and some who were part-time not receiving any benefits, it makes it quite difficult to pay all of the bills. The food pantry is opened for them on all Monday mornings from 10 to 10:30 a.m. except holidays. Examples of household eligibility guidelines currently effective are $480 per week for a household of one, $820 per week for a household of three, $1,160 per week for a household of five. For more information about the food pantry, call the church at 330-828-8302.
