Local food pantries are experiencing a shortage of supplies and increased demand at the same time -- several weeks before the busy holiday season. Janet Reynolds is client services coordinator at the Pittsford Food Cupboard. She says the number of clients has grown about 35 percent, and they're serving around 300 families a month right now, a number they usually don't see until around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Reynolds says the poor economy is to blame, and demand will only pick up during the upcoming holiday season. She says they'll need more local donations to meet the need, and people can help by donating food or money to the Pittsford Food Cupboard at 1 Grove Street in the Village.
