LeClair talked about the Teen Center Food Pantry, which is operated by members of the Teen Center Club. It’s open on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. To help the community from going hungry, BGCT is putting together a meal box for a family in need, which will be distributed right before Thanksgiving.
