FRASER, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit-area food pantry that serves 25,000 people plans to shut down Nov. 1 because of trouble finding adequate funding.

Hope Center Macomb Executive Director Steve Gibson said in a post on the agency’s website that funding has become increasingly difficult to secure because of a market becoming more saturated with agencies contending for the same financial support.

The food pantry that started is scheduled to provide clients their last full shopping carts from the pantry on Oct. 28. Gibson told the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/2diPyV5) the group is working to help clients with referrals to other food pantries, many of which are smaller and based out of churches, and to other area services.
