Area agency continues support for area service providers

The Barry-Lawrence Area United Fund has again provided support to the Monett Community Kitchen.

Since the Community Kitchen opened in 2010, the United Fund has provided $20,000 toward its operation. The Community Kitchen's food pantry, held on Mondays, provides many varieties of food products to 100 to 120 qualified families.

"The Barry-Lawrence Area United Fund board easily approves this distribution as it recognizes the impact that the Kitchen has on the in the community and also the commitment of the many volunteers that make it happen every week," Dudzik said.
