JUNE UPDATE – The Food Shelf will continue to use the curbside model for distribution this month. Plans are being made to make summer lunch bags to provide additional food and snacks for those with school age children at the distribution on June 20th from 9-11. Also, pet food will be available for the first time since February. Thanks for your continued support of food donations at the Jericho Market, Hannafords and Price Chopper.
Last month, 200 masks were distributed to food shelf recipients and volunteers. The remaining masks were donated to the Cambridge Food Shelf. Thanks to our kind volunteers for making masks to share. Masks will be available again at the June food shelf distribution. Contact us if you need a few cloth masks: email@example.com
Monetary donations can be sent to: PO Box 65, Jericho, VT 05465.
Please check the Food Shelf Website for updates regarding upcoming distribution.
Please continue to think of the food shelf when you do your shopping in the coming weeks. THANK YOU.
