The Nelson County Pantry is very grateful for all the support we received from the Lockn’ Festival held at Oak Ridge Estate from September 5th thru the 8th.  Our local residents who are most in need are the beneficiaries of several very generous donations given though non-profit organizations as part of Lockn’.

Funding America Through Entertainment obtained a donation from Wickles Pickles for $5,000 as well as four (4) pallets of Wickles product.  The pickle products are an added bonus.  Our Pantry is funded solely by private donations and grants and operates with an all volunteer staff.  We would not be able to purchase an extra like this.  Conscious Alliance collected nearly 1,500 pounds of non-perishable foods.  Together, these donations will provide enough food for a full month for the more than 250 households who depend on our Pantry.
