County residents 55 years and older are eligible to participate.
The food bank has a variety of dog and cat food. Shelter staff will be available to assist participants.
Director Linda Shea states, “We know the value of pets and understand the financial challenge that purchasing pet food can create for our seniors. For many people, pets are family. We hope that Minnie’s will help alleviate some of the burden of purchasing pet food.”
