ELIZABETHTON — Just a couple of days before Thanksgiving, the new food pantry at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology is stocked with food items for students whose full-time study schedule sometimes makes it difficult to earn money to buy enough food for their needs.

On Tuesday afternoon, Carter County Mayor Patty Woodby dropped off a big load of foods with a long shelf life for use in stocking the pantry. Several students helped her unload the items from her van and take them to the pantry.
