Hi team – This week was the kickoff for your Stroudwater Food Pantry’s new days and hours of operation. We were open Sunday 1:00 to 3:00 and Wednesday 12:00 to 3:00pm. Although Sunday was a very light day for us, this week in total we served 45 families, accounting for 150 people being fed. 7 new families joined us this week.
It was also our first week to distribute food from two Hannaford pickups; our Friday morning pickup was distributed this past Sunday, and our existing Wednesday morning pickup that was distributed yesterday afternoon. The total of our two Hannaford pickups yielded 889 lbs. of food. Our separate donations (non-Hannaford) of can foods and dry stores totaled 232 lbs. This week’s volunteers for both Sunday and Wednesday were Adam, Sheamus, Kevin, Anne, Doug, and Bill Barrows, with help from both Jean and Chad hauling in and putting away food.
What’s Next –
Thank you everyone who is working to make our operational changes a success! — Doug
