Over the past year, our local communities have been hit hard by the pandemic. Ever striving to give back, we have selected the Victor/Farmington Food Cupboard for our 1st quarter charity. According to Karen Guidarelli, the Director, “The Victor Farmington Food Cupboard (VFFC) moved in July to a larger space in Victor and have seen our numbers increase by roughly 35% since then (typically around 600 families/month at this time of year we are now closing in on 800 and served 990 in December!).” We know this past year has been tough for everyone, but if you have any of the following items in your pantry, please consider bringing them to the April event:
-Pasta and pasta sauce
-Paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, plastic cutlery–we give these to homeless people)
-Peanut butter (especially small sizes or packs for student lunch boxes)
small jars of jelly or jam
-Pop-top soup–hearty soups with protein and vegetables
-Canned proteins (chicken, tuna, black beans, etc.)
-Condiments – ketchup, mustard, relish, cooking oil, mayonnaise, steak sauce, salad dressing, etc.
-Canned fruit of any type
-Cereal (any type)
-Easy-to-prepare, nutritious, after school snacks: granola bars, crackers and cheese, peanut butter crackers, yogurt.
