The Westborough Food Pantry has seen an unusual amount of activity in recent weeks, said Virginia Lindsay, who helps run the charity.
Normally, the pantry serves about 50 families a week. Recently, around 65 families have been coming to the pantry at least once a week. Lindsay said she believes the tough economy is forcing people to cut back on the amount they can spend on food.
Residents who want to donate food can drop off items at the fire station on the corner of Milk and Grove Streets. Lindsay said monetary donations can be mailed to the food pantry at P.O. Box 502, Westborough, MA 01581.
