Pittsford Food Shelf Open House

March 22, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

There will be an Open House at the Pittsford Food Shelf on Saturday, March 22 from 9 am to noon.

Come have a cup of coffee & snack with us and see how the process works. Come meet our volunteers. The Pittsford Food Shelf is taking part in the annual Feinstein Million Dollar Food Challenge that contributes funds to each food shelf nationwide that participates, based on the amount of food and money that’s raised. This is the Pittsford Food Shelf’s biggest fundraiser of the year, so our challenge is to meet the goal of raising $35,000 in food and money.

What we raise from this single fundraiser lasts us all year long. The food shelf has no paid staff and operates only with dedicated volunteers, donated space and your generous donations of food and funds.

Did you know that the Pittsford Food Shelf helps 270 people per month who live in the towns of Pittsford, Proctor, Florence and Chittenden? In December alone, we provided over 6,000 items to people in need in our communities. The 70 families who receive our support each month are elderly people living on fixed incomes, single parents of school-age children, and working families struggling to make ends meet. They are our friends and neighbors, and they need our help!

Help us meet the challenge by making your tax-deductible donation from March 1 through April 30. Contributions are gratefully received when the Pittsford Food Shelf is open on Mondays from 9 to 11 a.m. or on Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. at our location next to Keith’s Store. Food donations can be left anytime at Keith’s Store during their open hours.

Monetary contributions can be made with checks payable to the Pittsford Food Shelf and mailed to P.O. Box 553, Pittsford, VT 05763.

Can your community group or business lend a hand? We greatly appreciate your support in collecting food and funds to help us reach our goal. We’ll do our best to make it easy for you to hold your own food drives and fundraisers to make the Challenge a big success!

If you have any questions about the Pittsford Food Shelf feel free to call Robin @ 483-2967. Thank you for your continued support.
