A community is rallying after a heartless crime at a church food pantry.

Cases of food intended for hungry families in the community were stolen from the Webster Dudley Food Share Pantry.

Since word of the brazen theft has spread, a lot of people have stepped up bringing in donations to help make up for the pantry's lost inventory.

"I couldn't sit there and feed my family and knowing somebody was going without," said Northbridge's Kerry Forte.
