For a moment Saturday morning, the biggest issue at the Donald Bentley Food Pantry was cereal: Would there be enough?In an hour, the pantry's customers would be outside waiting for cartons of free food. And now Bessie Oster, 16, a St. Paul's School sophomore, was worried that they had run out of corn flakes.But James Flanagan, the food pantry's president, had the answer. "Give 'em grits," he said, pointing to the stack of boxes left over from last week. "That can be breakfast."In the back room of the storefront at 2405 Loch Raven Road in north Baltimore, eight high-school students, with the help of Mr. Flanagan, his 11-year-old son, Jamie, and a few neighborhood volunteers, were filling cartons with enough food to keep 40 families going for a few days.

Moths are flying in my house, and I'm worried about my woolens and rugs. How do I get rid of them? They're probably not clothes moths, which are tiny and rarely glimpsed. Indian meal moths, however, are common year-round. This pantry pest has a faint dark band across its dusty wings. It originates in pasta, spices, cereals and -- take note this time of year -- bird seed, among other sources. Call us or read our online publication, Pantry Pests, for simple measures you can follow to eradicate the moths.

In recent years, British cooking has gotten experimental and interesting, escaping from its role as the punch line of every culinary joke. Still, the chef who embraces traditional British foods outside of the United Kingdom is taking a risk. The Brits definitely know how to do some things right in the kitchen, though, and Baltimore is fortunate that Neill Howell - a native of Britain and the former Bond Street Social executive chef - is sharing a few of those successes with the city.

As Paul Dickover stood at the pulpit of Trinity Episcopal Church on Sunday and told the hundreds in attendance of the work involved in the Assistance Center of Towson Churches renovation this summer, he told of a project that grew to nearly twice its original scale. But for Dickover, the contractor, and the leaders of the ACTC, the downtown Towson food pantry, which serves those in need in central Baltimore County, they knew a little bit of faith would take their project a long way. "If you tried to think too far ahead, the whole idea would have been daunting," Cathy Burgess, executive director of the ACTC, said.

Weeks ago, fire tore through a church that nearly straddles the Mason-Dixon Line, destroying books, the organ, the food bank pantry, the choir room, and nearly everything else. Hand bells swung by congregants for generations exploded from their casings in the heat and landed in the nearby graveyard. On Saturday morning, cars lined the parking lot of a day care center a quarter-mile from the remains of Lazarus Church in Lineboro, waiting patiently for the temporary food bank to open.
