PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ¬†As part of an effort to make sure their six-county area is covered, staff of the Food Bank of Northern Indiana recently began offering a mobile food pantry ‚ÄĒ bringing food to those that need it, right where they are.
‚ÄúThis is a new program for us in 2012,‚ÄĚ said Amanda Peterson, resource opportunity developer for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. ‚ÄúWe are trying to reach out to each county first, then individual cities. We are planning to do a mobile pantry in Marshall County once a month.‚ÄĚ

PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ Thanks to an alleged ‚Äúprogramming error‚ÄĚ at the Indiana Department of Revenue, Marshall County is being reimbursed today for money it should have received over the last two years, in the tune of $1.4 million.

‚ÄúThe $1.4 million to us means as much as the $33 million does for Marion County,‚ÄĚ said Lukenbill.
