Donating two pigs to Hilltop Neighborhood House Food
Pantry Monday afternoon marked the first time Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. has
worked with the food pantry to provide for those in need. Food insecurity has
risen since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, making this service more
crucial than ever.
“We have been able to feed at least 178 people every
week,” said Lisa Pavlopoulos, Director of Community Resources and Finance at
Hilltop Neighborhood House. “When COVID-19 first hit, we were up 300 percent.
We were all shocked there were that many people.”
With the rise in food insecurity, Cliff Bryan, Managing
Director of Investments at Benjamin F. Edwards & Co., and his wife Laura
decided they wanted to do something about it. Bryan was not sure what the food
pantry was looking for, but Pavlopoulos said that the two pigs he brought were
a wonderful addition to their food supplies.
