RIVESVILLE — “I try to give them something the kids will like,” Norman Malson said.

Malson, who serves as chairman of the Shepherd’s Love Food Pantry in Rivesville, says that the pantry is making a difference for dozens of families in the area.

Shepherd’s Love is supported by four area churches: Rivesville United Methodist Church (where the pantry is housed), Highlawns United Methodist Church, Wesley Chapel and McCurdysville United Methodist Church.

“We try to make a real nice basket, and I think we really do,” Malson said.
