HIGH POINT, N.C. — The shelves at a local food pantry are becoming increasingly empty, but people keep coming for food assistance at the Salvation Army in High Point.

“We are in desperate need of canned food supplies to give out to our neighbors in need,” Major Jim Rickard of High Point Salvation Army said in a press release.

“There is now a limit of 20 cans of food that a family can receive because of the very limited supply of food left.”

With the holidays closing in, the Salvation Army needs the community’s help in this call to action to help provide non-perishable food supplies for those in need.

    The food pantry can’t keep food on it’s shelves because the working middle class is finding it harder and harder to put food on their tables.
    The working middle class are also tired of footing the bill for illegals and welfare queens who pop out a baby a year and get it all for free, sell their food stamps to buy drugs and booze and do not take care of the babies they pop out for more welfare money.
    We the working middle class then get to pay for these babies once again as they age and enter our criminal justice system.
