Canned corn again? Katharine Frase, our Food Pantry “buyer” writes: “You can’t believe how hard it is for me to source canned corn!”
Please consider making the “item of the month” part of your weekly shopping. You can leave your donation in the Food Pantry basket in the Gathering Space.
When the Deacons suggest an “item of the month,” it’s not just some suggestion from a rotating calendar, it’s actually something that we find our clients especially like to choose and that we may find hard to procure. As you know, we now have a Full Choice model at the Food Pantry, where our clients can choose items that best fulfill the needs of their household. We buy food in bulk from Feeding Westchester, but not all the items we’d like to offer are always available.
Noting the item of the month and bringing in some supplies can help the pantry offer as wide a variety of foods as possible. Just place the items in the basket in the Gathering Space. You may also directly contribute to Food Pantry Plus.
