LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local food pantry struggling to keep the shelves stocked will soon see some help from a big corporate donor.

scott_and_gil72The St. Vincent de Paul food pantry on south Preston Street has been open from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays since July. When organizers opened it in July, they anticipated serving about 60 families per month, but ended up serving closer to 300 every month. We spoke to some of the people who use the food pantry on Tuesday. Many of them say they have jobs, but aren't earning enough to make ends meet.

The food pantry operates outside of the norm, because it allows families to come in and "shop" for the foods they want, rather than just handing them a box of canned goods. Organizers say it's a way for those in need to leave with a sense of dignity and allows the food pantry to maximize its resources.
