St. Vincent de Paul running out of food to feed hungry families - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

St. Vincent de Paul food pantries running out of food

WEST END, OH (FOX19) -

St. Vincent de Paul has several neighborhood-based pantries throughout Cincinnati, including Choice Food Pantry in the West End, and they are running out of food.

Officials say they've experienced a dramatic increase in need over the past few months, and now they are running out of food to give to hungry families.

"Many of the people we are seeing have never received help from us before, or have been self-sufficient for the past 4 or 5 years but now find they can no longer make ends meet," wrote St. Vincent de Paul Communications Coordinator Elysa Hamlin to FOX19 on Thursday.

Hamlin says after serving more than 100 people at the Choice Food Pantry on Tuesday, the shelves were bare. The pantry will be open again on Friday, and organizers worry they will have nothing to offer those in need.

In addition, this increase in need has been felt throughout the city and into the suburbs. Food pantries in Mt. Airy, Price Hill and Mt. Washington are also short.

According to Hamlin, the Mt. Washington pantry is so low on food that they also have nothing left to re-stock their shelves.

If you'd like to help, stop in at any of the nine St. Vincent de Paul food pantries in the area. Learn more about the society here: http://www.svdpcincinnati.org

    The hacking attempts mirror similar Russian attacks ahead of the 2016 election, which U.S. intelligence officials have said were focused on helping to elect Republican Donald Trump to the presidency by hurting his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
