The Barrow County Food Pantry has received a donation of $645 from the .
The local theater group selects a Barrow County nonprofit to benefit from a portion of proceeds from each of its theatrical productions.
Since the latest production — “The Red Velvet Cake War” — was about a cooking contest, the cast decided they would cook red velvet food items such as cupcakes and cookies to sell in the concession stand during each intermission. All of the money raised by selling these special items was donated to the food pantry along with generous donations from audience members. A large box of canned food items was also donated by the cast and audience members.
