IT'S TIME for some summer cleaning. Gather up soup cans, pancake mix and other nonperishable items. Jacky Waller, who runs Bread of Life, a Savage food pantry, reports supplies are running very low. Bread of Life receives most donations through school and church-sponsored food drives. "Summertime is a low time for donations," Waller said. "People are away. Nothing gets organized in the summer." Summer demand usually is lower, and there is enough to go around. But not this year. "We have more families than last year.

There's nothing quite as much fun as heading to the farmers' market on a weekend morning, roaming the stalls, sparking a few ideas for dinner and then heading home to cook.But most of the time, we're cooking dinner between doing a half dozen other things. The mark of a real cook is being able to fix a good meal in the midst of real life.Let's face it: Given perfect ingredients, any fool can turn out a decent dish. It's when there's no time to find the perfect ripe tomatoes or the piece of fish that smells just like the sea that good cooking becomes a challenge.

IT MAY BE the smallest specifically designated space in the house, but -- just as it was 150 years ago -- it's one of the most helpful, convenient and comforting.The space is the pantry -- the very name conjures images of plenty -- and it's back, both in newly constructed houses and in kitchen renovations. After decades on the out list, when refrigerators and built-in cabinetry filled the old food-keeping role of the pantry and butlers who polished the silver vanished, pantries have again come into favor in the past few years.

Lucille Kane cradled the heavy cardboard box as gently as a baby in her arms.Walking out to her car, she smiled down at all the food,the canned beans and corn, the bread, stuffing and fresh oranges. All she needed to start cooking was the turkey and the ingredients to her favorite pineapple upside-down cake. She and her children were going to have a great Thanksgiving feast."Yep, we're gonna have a turkey and stuffing and everything," said Kane, who is struggling to keep food on the table and a roof over the heads of her three children and two grandchildren.

The Rev. Dennis Hancock's blue eyes look weary, worried. For the first time in two years, he has to tell families inquiring about Thanksgiving baskets that "we'll take your name. If we get turkeys in, we'll see that you get one."The Brooklyn Church of the Nazarene's pantry is down to a few cans of green beans, corn and sauerkraut. There is no meat.Unless food and money starts trickling in soon, Mr. Hancock fears he may have to scale his pantry operation back from five days to one. He does not rule out closing the pantry.

WHEN CARROLL COUNTY Food Sunday recently found its cupboard nearly bare, caring people responded to that need with money, other donations and food collection drives. The community response to this 14-year-old food pantry was impressive enough to leverage a $2,000 grant from the Maryland Food Committee and the promise of $1,000 more by year's end.That was the good news for the non-profit volunteer agency, and for some 350 working poor families who depend on its weekly distributions of nutritious groceries to make ends meet.
