Lockwood, New York is a rural community only an eight minute drive from Waverly. We have been warming welcomed by the small, but big hearted parish of the Lockwood Methodist Church, to partner with them to create a food pantry. The Lockwood pantry will be open once a week on Fridays. The pantry officially opens November 14, 2014.
For those that may never have heard of Lockwood, New York it is a hamlet with a population of a little under 1,000 people. A large portion of the Lockwood population is over the age of 60. In addition, over 24% of the hardworking people in Lockwood earn less than $15,000 per year, almost double that national average. Even with the challenges that the Lockwood community faces they are a caring and devoted community, always willing to help their neighbors. We are so excited about our fantastic new pantry and wonderful new friends.
