Edmonson County Senior Food Pantry teamed up with AmeriCorps Seniors to host their second annual Senior Ice Cream Social today, May 19th, 2022 in the Edmonson County Community Center.
Various vendors set gave seniors a chance to see what services were offered to them, according to Senior Food Pantry Coordinator Vickie Walker.
"This is our second time doing this, and we want to continue to do this every year," Walker said. "We do this so that the seniors in our community get an opportunity to know what kinds of services they qualify for, and we serve ice cream so everybody has a good time."
Walker said while the pantry is technically open to people over the age of 60 who are in need of food, they never turn anyone down. "We just want to help whoever we can. I am here Monday through Friday every week, and if for some reason I'm not here, my phone number is on the door and I'll be glad to answer your call."
Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon signed a proclamation that recognized May as "Older Americans Month" in Edmonson County.
Walker said she wanted to thank everyone who came out to today's event, and said she sends a "huge and special" thank you to all of the vendors who came out to help.
