A Message From the Food Pantry
Submitted by Chuck R.
During the two distributions for the Barre Food Pantry in the month of April, we served over 100 households. The “drive-through” style distribution is continuing to be safe, successful and appreciated by the clients and by the volunteers.
It is our intention to continue with this strategy to achieve our mission to help food-insecure and hungry people in our area.
During the month of May, the two distributions will be on Wednesday morning May 13th between 10:00 a.m. and noon, and on Thursday evening, May 21st from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
As we continue our work during the challenging circumstances of the ongoing pandemic, we are working in shifts, in small household/family groups to pre-assemble grocery bags for the distribution.
We look forward to the circumstances changing, which will allow us to once again meet in groups to bag groceries and to prepare for distributions as a community. We also look forward to the time when our clients are once again able to do more individualized “shopping” of the available groceries. But in the meantime, we will maintain these safe strategies of physical distancing.
We remain grateful to all of the members of the Barre Congregational Church for the use of the church as our home and base of operations and for all of your care and support.
