Nicolas Arredondo holds his daughter Shelomep Arredondo, 2, while waiting to receive food to help feed himself and his eight children. Thursday, he and about 70 other people received help with the opening of a food pantry at St. Matthew's House of Treasures Thrift Shop in Bonita Springs. To qualify for food assistance twice a month, clients must be Lee County residents, have a Social Security card for themselves and all children, have small children, be over 50 or be on disability. Those who don't meet those requirements are eligible for assistance once a month. Lexey Swall-Bobay/Staff
