Weekly deliveries of fresh organic produce from Gaining Ground Farms (Concord) are beginning to arrive, now through the end of the local growing season.
During this pandemic, the SCFP has witnessed substantial community support. Neighbors have volunteered their time. The Chinese-American Association of Sudbury provided needed cleaning supplies in March and organized multiple large food donations for the Pantry thereafter. In addition, all four Sudbury elementary schools organized independent food drives delivering the food during the week ending April 17th. And, The First Baptist Church of Sudbury, the Presbyterian Church, St. John’s Lutheran’s Church, St. Vincent’s Conference at St Anselm’s as well as St. Vincent’s Conference at Our Lady of Fatima each organized successful food drives, most of which food was delivered to the SCFP on Friday April 24th.
And on May 1st, the Memorial Congregational Church of Sudbury (MCC) delivered yet another well-rounded and substantial load of filled banana boxes of donated food and personal products, which all together (with the other donations and what we are able to obtain through Greater Boston Food bank) will help keep our shelves filled for several weeks. Thank you community!!
The Sudbury Community Food Pantry gratefully acknowledges that it has been awarded a $5,000 grant by the trustees of the Sudbury Foundation through the Herbert and Esther Atkinson Fund of the Foundation for MetroWest, which will be used towards the purchase of food and other essentials needed to best serve our clients.
We celebrate beginning the 4th year of our partnership with Hope & Comfort (hopeandcomfort.org, of Needham), which provides us with personal hygiene products on a monthly basis.
