Re: Brianna Quinn’s June 18 letter, “Grocery stores need to give good, unsold food to charity” (Page A4): I want to assure Brianna that some grocery stores do, indeed, support their local food pantries.

I volunteer at our local food pantry, and twice a week we are very fortunate to receive from our local grocery store fruits, vegetables, fresh bread, frozen meats, store-made meals, desserts and cheese that our patrons are thrilled to receive. Also, our local farmers share their harvest with us throughout the summer and fall.

My heart is full each week. We have a wonderful program.
