Creating a Hunger-Free Community
The challenge grant that Community Food Cupboard has relied upon as the basis of their spring fundraising campaign is no longer available. Upon learning this news, the Stratton Foundation has donated one-third of the CFC’s food budget for the year! “We are very grateful for this generous gift and hope it will inspire others to make whatever contribution they can towards our goal of creating a hunger-free community,” states Martha Carey, director of the Community Food Cupboard, which has provided groceries to local families in need for more than 25 years. Last year, they served 381 households, or over 1,000 neighbors.
If you would like to join in the spirit of generosity shown by the Stratton Foundation, please send your contribution to CFC, P.O. Box 864, Manchester Center, VT 05255. Your gift at this time will ensure that we can continue to be a resource for those who are struggling through difficult times. Donations of non-perishable food or personal care items may also be left in the collection box in the Manchester town office building, Manchester Community Library, or any of the religious congregations in Manchester. For details, call 802-362-0057, visit the website at communityfoodcupboard.org, or stop by the CFC in the Manchester town office building on Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m. or Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and 2 to 4 p.m.
