COVID-19 UPDATE from EJEUM –
Thanks to the volunteers who made our first drive-through Food Shelf a success. Fifty families were served and all were appreciative as they received food and friendly waves from volunteers.
The Essex-Jericho-Underhill Food Shelf will continue to serve our communities as able. Our Food Shelf relies on community donations. With the closing of area churches, we are asking that donations be placed in donation bins at Hannafords, Price Chopper and the Jericho Market.
Monetary donations can be sent to: PO Box 65, Jericho, VT 05465.
Please check the Food Shelf Website for updates regarding the next distribution on April 18.
Please Remember – The Food Shelf relies on Good Shepherd for the donations of Jars of Spaghetti Sauce. Almost all of the Jars of spaghetti sauce were used on Saturday. Please continue to think of the food shelf when you do your shopping in the coming weeks. THANK YOU.
ECUMENICAL FOOD SHELF ~ The Essex-Jericho-Underhill Ecumenical Ministry (EJEUM) Food shelf is located at Good Shepherd. EJEUM is a partnership of local churches, groups and individuals working together to combat hunger. Food distributions are held at Good Shepherd on the third Saturday of the month, starting at 9:30 am.
