More people in La Pine are turning to the Community Kitchen for help. Currently the food pantry hands out 400 food boxes every month. Christina Riggs with the Kitchen says they were just turned down for a third time for a Community Development Federal Grant. She says the need is greater than ever: “Between 2008 and 2009, 43% increase. Last year, we served over 16,000 meals. Right now we're at 19,000 meals and we haven't even finished the year yet.” The La Pine Pantry is in the process of remodeling a donated building from Deschutes County. It was an old Knott Landfill building and the Kitchen will be using it to hand out food boxes. The remodeling should be done by the end of the year.
