Good evening, everybody – today we served 31 families, including 62 adults, 36 children and 15 seniors, for a total of 113 people.
This weekend we’ll be receiving another 20 dozen eggs from the Hastings Farmers’ Market. This means so much to us because our clients love eggs. As fast as we receive them we give them out. And if an egg supplier has extra eggs, this is the perfect solution.
We’re starting to receive unopened food not wanted by the students during lunch at Springhurst and the Dobbs Ferry Middle/High School also. This worked beautifully last year, and we’ll be happy to receive the food again this year. In the past this food was thrown out. Now it will feed our clients.
The Feeding Westchester 5K is this coming Sunday at Pace University in Pleasantville. Three of us will be participating. A couple of other volunteers wanted to but are injured. Thanks to everybody on this list who has donated. We’d be happy to receive more donations. Just go to the Feeding Westchester website, find the Miles for Meals 5K section and click on “donate”. If you designate the Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry, maybe we’ll win another fundraising trophy like we did last year.
We’ve received more canned food from the Dobbs Ferry Senior Center. Thanks to Abby for reminding the people that our need for food never goes away.
Our beloved CSA will end in October. At this point we’re still receiving fruits and vegetables not only from the CSA but from the Roots & Wings garden. Today Marc harvested beautiful cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and mint. By noon everything had been taken.
