Hands of Mercy in Kingston has never served exclusively Kingston.

The food pantry, which has been headquartered in Kingston for a number of years, recently acquired a new building in Harriman.

The Harriman building, at 421 Devonia St., will serve as a satellite office.

“I’m really hoping our presence in Harriman will make people realize we are in Kingston, but we’re not just a Kingston entity,” said Sharon Pinner, the food pantry’s director.

“We serve all of Roane County.”
