The food pantry, located at the Harry W. Browne Airport in Buena Vista Township, began collecting food for military service members who suffer economic hardships five years ago. In honor of the memory of those who lost their lives during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the pantry is hosting an all day food drive at the Kroger grocery store at 4672 State St.

Military members, both active duty and veterans, are assisting the 1% Percent Food Pantry collect the donations. In addition, Kroger is donating $10,000 dollars to the organization to assist in their mission.
