VANDALIA — The Vandalia American Legion Post 668 made a generous donation to the Vandalia Butler Food Pantry on Wednesday. The post took food pantry organizers on a huge shopping spree at Kroger.

The food pantry ordered pallets of food ahead of time, which were waiting on them at checkout when they arrived.

While at the story, the Legion asked the volunteers to grab some empty shopping carts and fill them up just to supplement what was already selected. In the end nearly $4,500 worth of food was purchased, which will all be going exclusively to hungry families in Vandalia and Butler Township.
