Proceeds from the Belfast Rotary Club’s pancake breakfasts were distributed Feb. 17 to four local food cupboards and St. Francis’ soup kitchen. Club member Marjorie Crowley gave out the donations to the Rev. Scott Baker of the Little River Baptist Church, Ralph Harvey of the Searsport Food Cupboard, the Rev. David Abbott of the Greater Bay Area Ministerium Food Cupboard and Jared and Cleo Alley of the Northport Food Cupboard.

A representative from the soup kitchen was not able to be present to accept the donation. In accepting the check, Abbott said, “Thank you for feeding others so that we can feed the people of Waldo County.” Each of the representatives said use of their food cupboard is up substantially this year.
