Good afternoon, everyone – yesterday we served a total of 29 families, including 55 adults, 41 children and 12 seniors.
Tom and Andrew picked up our first CSA shares from FABLE this past Sunday, and we’re off to a flying start. We’ll have two shares plus whatever is left over at the end of the pick-up period on Sunday mornings. FABLE had seven different items of produce for us this week, and we’ll see how the products vary over the summer.
On top of that, from the Roots & Wings garden, Marc gave us broccoli and several different herbs. Early on Wednesday morning we visited the garden and brought in spinach, sage, basil and mint. And the summer is only beginning!
When we arrived on Wednesday morning there were six bags of food donated by the parishioners of Ardsley Methodist Church, delivered, as always, by Ken Stahn. They bring food to us every month, which is immediately given out.
Then, as the pantry was in progress, Carol Seischab arrived, as she does every week, with two boxes of food from Zion Episcopal. Carol never comes empty-handed, and she brings donations from both Zion Episcopal and Dobbs Ferry Lutheran. Thanks to Carol for your dedication, and thanks to the congregants of both churches for keeping us in mind every week.
It’s even more important over the summer when children don’t get lunch at school.
Last week we also got our monthly delivery of diapers, sizes 4, 5 and 6, from a generous woman in Greenburgh who has the diapers automatically delivered to my house from Amazon. She’s a young mother herself, so she knows how important those diapers are to a struggling family. If anybody else would like to donate diapers we’ll be happy to receive them and give them out, especially the larger sizes.
