It's still not good for peanut butter at the Hockanum Valley Community Council's food pantry.
Last week, HVCC officials issued a desperate call for help for summer staples, specifically peanut butter and macaroni and cheese.
HVCC officials last Thursday estimated that the current supply will only last two weeks.
A "moderate amount" of mac and cheese was donated last week but peanut butter has been tough to come by. HVCC officials guessed it could be the high price of the product these days - an 18-ounce jar of Jif creamy was being advertised for $3.28 on Tuesday night at Walmart.com.
The hope was to get a lot of peanut butter for families whose children are on summer vacation because a jar can be stretched into many sandwiches, HVCC officials said.
Donations may be brought to the HVCC Pantry, 29 Naek Rd., on:
• Monday, 9 a.m. to noon.
• Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.
• Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.
• Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Friday, 9 a.m. to noon.
The pantry is also running low on cereal, officials said.
The HVCC Food Pantry is an emergency food source for residents of Vernon, Tolland, and Ellington. The food is free to individuals who meet income and residency requirements.
