One of the top requests by our clients is for fresh produce. Our partners, Gaining Ground and Saltbox Farm, both in Concord, have been fulfilling that request for years. Cooking at home is even more rewarding with great ingredients, and fresh produce can’t be beat for taste and health. We thank both of these great organizations for picking organic produce in the morning, washing it, and bringing it to us for distribution, all in the same day, throughout the growing season. Now that’s fresh! Thank you!
(Letter sent to Ed on January 4.)
I have been thinking about you and how much I admire what you have done for the Town of Sudbury. They are very fortunate to have you as a resident. You have touched many lives I suspect more than you realize, Many many people , too many to count would not have volunteered to help the residents of Sudbury if it were not for your tenacity of not letting go until they signed on the bottom line for: Fish , Mr. Fix-it, Meals on wheels, sand bucket, etc. I personality thank you for 30years ago at the June 2001 RMA meeting when you asked for a volunteer to stock shelves at the Food pantry. A place I did not know existed. I am still involved. George may have told you about the outpouring of generosity of donations this year. I just received the 2020 numbers and it was the busiest in history. I would not be writing about The Sudbury Community Food pantry, which means so much too many if it were not for you. To this day, your name is associated with the pantry. I want to let you know your pantry is in very good hands. We will keep it on course.
You truly have made a difference in the town of Sudbury. Thanks ED.

The Sudbury Community Food Pantry is the grateful recipient of a $10,000.00 grant awarded by the Northern Bank & Trust Charitable Foundation in furtherance of their objective to make a difference in the communities they serve. The grant was awarded to help support SCFP’s mission to serve individuals and families struggling during the COVID-10 crisis (no matter where the client resides).
