Good afternoon, everybody – I wasn’t at the pantry this morning, but the rest of the team soldiered on. They served 34 families with 60 adults, 31 children and 16 seniors, for a total of 107 people.
Hope to see everyone at the Ferry Festa this coming Saturday from 1:00 to 8:00. South Presbyterian Church will have a table which will be shared by the church, the pantry, Roots & Wings and the CSA. Roots & Wings will have a beanbag toss game, with an apple as a prize, and there will be a sign-up sheet for a Thanksgiving CSA share. Come on down.
This coming Sunday Benny and I will be representing the pantry again at the Irvington Farmers’ Market. It’s always fun to go to, and donors are generous. Hope to see some of you there.
We’ve been bringing food on a weekly basis to a disabled senior citizen at Children’s Village for a long time. We call her every week to tell her what we have to offer and she chooses what she wants. When the pantry is finished we drive it over to her. Today the team members tried to reach her and didn’t get an answer. Everybody was worried. Ultimately we were able to contact her nephew who told us that she was at the dentist. We worry about our clients!
Tomorrow we’ll have our eighteen-month inspection by Feeding Westchester. Everybody keep your fingers crossed that we pass inspection.
