This Month at the Food Cupboard

The weather has been kind to us and we have not had to close our doors because of bad conditions, although we have had some close calls!

Our client numbers remain high but happily we have been able to meet the demand because of the continued genorosity of the community.  People are hungry all year round and we work hard to keep food on our shelves. Thankfully donations have continued even though the big holiday food drives are long gone.

We are always looking for ways to improve the service we provide our clients.  For example, we used to offer every household one jar of spaghetti sauce and one can of tomatoes regardless of the number of people in the family. We have started to offer two jars of sauce and two cans of tomatoes to all families and four  of each to families of five and more. We have also increased the quantities of milk, eggs, and fresh produce we offer.  Client response has been very positive.
