SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - A Sheridan food bank will be handing out food to those in need one less day a week as a result of declining food donations.

The Sheridan Press reports (https://bit.ly/1FVUHdb ) that officials with the People Assistance Food Bank announced that they will no longer be open on Thursdays to distribute food.

Manager Dan Lick says Thursday distribution was cut because there haven’t been enough donations coming in. He says the change is temporary.

Earlier this year, the food bank stopped accepting donations from Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies, which said they gave about 220,000 pounds annually to People Assistance. The donations were brought to a halt following a contract disagreement.

Lick says the food bank is looking to have more donations ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
