Local food pantry’s are seeing an uptick in the number of people they serve this winter. Executive Director of Gods Helping Hand in Big Rapids Randy Piatt says there has definitely been more people looking for help either by way of a meal, clothes or other means. He says this winter has been especially tough on some folks. Piatt says they are always looking for donations since their organization is not state or federally funded. He says God's Helping Hand is looking for donations of clothes, toys and non-perishable food items but no home-made items or home- canned items. Cash donations are always welcome as well according to Piatt.
