GREEN COUNTY – A teenager in the Miami Valley saw the need for access to food in her community.
Now she is doing what she can to help.
Casey Clark, a senior at Beavercreek High School, created a food pantry for community hours for her Girl Scout troupe.
The pantry is located outside Fire Station 65 in Beavercreek Township.
Clark said he has spent every moment of his leisure time, about 60 hours, building pantries for the community and even running two food drives to help with stock shelves.

She has partnered with “Feed the Creek”, an organization that works to provide baby food to reduce childhood hunger.
“I come all the time and look like you know people get out of it and then they recover. I’m really glad people are using it, “Clark told Kayla McDermott of News Center 7.
Clark’s mother, Kimberly Clark-Lane, says she is proud of what she has done for her daughter and her community.
