SOUTHBRIDGE — When people cannot afford food, the economy is in pretty tough shape.

That's why the FoodShare pantry and other local food groups exist. But it also means such groups need community support more than ever.

On April 5, FoodShare is seeking such support through its 33rd annual Radiothon, when pantry staff, community leaders and others take over the airwaves of WESO-AM 970 — and, this year, community cable Channel 13 — to talk about the economy, food and related issues all day.
