Hi Team – Your Stroudwater Food Pantry had a very busy Sunday with 52 families served for a total of 136 people receiving groceries. 12 new families joined us this week, taking us to a new total of 491 households registered to receive groceries on a regular basis.
Our Shaw’s food pickup and two Hannaford food pickups on Friday yielded a total of 1,626 lbs.; plus the Westbrook Hannaford donated 36 “Give a Meal” boxes weighing 324 lbs. We received a donation of 16 frozen turkeys and also 50 Thanksgiving dinner baskets, all of which weighed in at 2,350 lbs. The total weight of all food received was 4,524 lbs., meaning more than 2 ¼ tons of food was processed by SFP volunteers this past weekend. Volunteers included Anne, Adam, Jenn, Sheamus, Michael C, Steve, Karlene, Mike Halkiu, Ellen, Bobby, Tammy, Terry, Angie, and myself.
