HERMISTON — The Hermiston Lions Club recently presented checks to two local food pantries to support families in need due to COVID-19. The Irrigon/Boardman Food Pantry was given $1,000, and Echo’s Chester Food Pantry received $1,750.

Irrigon/Boardman Emergency Assistance Center is North Morrow County’s food pantry and not only provides food for families in need but also rent support, propane for heating and cooking, as well as other assistance. Echo’s food pantry is operated by the local Kiwanis Club and helps with food needs within their community.
