BATH – Food Pantry customers in Corning had fresh produce to add to their grocery lists last week, thanks to a sizable donation of vegetables from the Steuben County Jail’s inmates garden. According to county Legislator Hilda Lando, D-Corning City, 75 pounds of vegetables were delivered Thursday (Sept. 1) to the Corning Food Pantry, including 25 pounds of tomatoes, 30 pounds of squash and zucchini and 20 pounds of peppers and cabbage.
"We really appreciate what the staff and the inmates have done for the pantry," Lando said. "This will go a long way to help those who are food insecure.
