COMMUNITY - "Harris Market offers help for food pantry donations"

GARLAND – By Cari Doutre – April 13, 2020


It’s a difficult time for many people in the community as the fear behind the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic hits the one-month mark.

As panicked shoppers cleared the shelves at grocery stores around the country, and in the community, the shelves of the Tremonton Food Pantry also diminished.

Many local organizations have been working diligently to fill those shelves at the food pantry, including the owner of Harris Market in Garland, Gary Harris.

“Times are tough for everyone right now but there are some who have it rougher,” said Merrilee Gardner with Harris Market.

The Tremonton Food Pantry is open two days a week for community donations but for those wishing to donate outside of those hours, Harris Market is offering up help.

Harris Market has placed a white trailer on the west side of the parking lot at the store, located at 86 S. Main St., Garland. The trailer is open during the day for anyone wishing to donate to the food pantry. Harris will then personally deliver items to the food pantry during donation times.

“Gary just wants to help out and make a drop off donation spot more convenient for people who want to help out,” added Gardner.
